While Rubberhose won’t instantly make you a better animator, what it will do is provide you with a tool that will grow with you, making character animation a lot less stressful and daunting. It’s certainly pushed us to try out more advanced character rigging and be more experimental with our animation, simply because the plugin makes it easy.
Looking to the future, we’d love to combine this with other plugins and add-ons to continue to push the limits of motion graphics and animation. One that springs to mind straight away is Hernan Torrisi’s Bodymovin
(we did a whole separate blog post on Bodymovin here
.) The idea of making interactive web animations featuring fun, Rubberhose rigged characters is something we’ve very, very keen to get working on. Fingers crossed it’s something coming soon.
All of us at Hungry Sandwich Club
are looking forward to what the next version of Rubberhose brings to the table. If you’ve not checked it out yet, then we seriously consider it. Head over to the Battle Axe website
to take a look!
