Moho/ Anime Studio: Advanced Rigging - Creating Professional Rigs

Learn advanced methods to create your own professional rig


Ready to make professional rigs and start making money with your animations?! This advanced rigging course is the final step in the rigging series. With this course you will not only learn how to master rigging in Moho/ Anime Studio but you will also discover confidence in yourself and your skills and start applying the knowledge you learn here into a marketable skill.

My goal with this course is to show you how to create professional and marketable rigs that you can either sell or use in your own personal/ client projects.

I will be showing you how to create 3 different types of professional rigs.:

  • Bitmap*
  • Vector
  • Hybrid (mix between bitmap and vector)

*At this time your are only shown the Bitmap character rig

Along with learning how to create professional rigs I will also teach you how to do the following advanced techniques:

  • Create Smart Bone Actions
  • Create Smart Bone Dial
  • Smart Warp
  • Smart Warp Action
  • Import from Photoshop to Moho
  • Bitmap Rigging
  • Creating 2.5D Body Turns
  • Triangualating 2D Meshes
  • Creating Smart Warp for Bitmap Rig

This course is a WORK IN PROGRESS and I will be occasionally updating the course with new techniques and new rigs as I discover them.

Moho Studio Academy

Hi my name is McCoy Buck. I am a 2D & 3D animator and can't wait to teach you everything I know.


Do you have downloadable rigs available that we can modify and resale?

NO, the character designs in this course are the characters that already come with Moho. I would strongly advise against re-selling as they are not mine.

Are there pre - requisites for this course?

YES! The first one is for beginners called the 'Handy Rigging Tool Guide (Beginner)' it's FREE! The other is 'Understand & Apply Binding Techniques (Intermediate)

Is this course the same as the 'Complete Rigging Course: Moho & Anime Studio'?

YES! Great question, if you are enrolled in that course this is the advanced section of that course.

Will talk about how to use these rigs in an animation?

No, I would like to put together a course - at a future date - on how you can create an animated explainer video for your first paying client.
