Auto-Rig Pro: Rig Library

One of our alumni and animator, Joris van Laar, created this library of 24 rig presets for the Blender Auto-Rig Pro, auto rigging and retargeting addon. We are an affiliate so if you buy it from this link we get a small part of the sale and you support our future students and our free training resources and contribute to the Blender fund when you buy on Blender Market.

Auto-Rig Pro: Rig Library includes everything from Allosaurs to Horse rigs and Kangaroo to spider rigs and many more.

Auto-Rig Pro recommendation

Some of our earliest Blender work at Rigging Dojo was looking at what rigging and retargeting options were viable in Blender and we came across Auto-Rig pro. It had both a nice rigging system as well as a good retarget tool. We reached out to the creator and suggested a few improvements and now have live retarget editing so you can make adjustments on the retarget before you bake.

We have worked with many clients using Auto-rig pro and it is our recommended retargeting toolkit when using motion capture in Blender.

To have these rigs work fully you will need to have or get the Auto-rig pro addon but both combined are still cheaper than buying tokens to run other 3d tools.

Important: This is not a standalone product.
It requires Auto-Rig Pro (version 3.68.12 and up), get it here.

About the Auto-Rig Pro addon

Auto-Rig Pro is an addon for Blender to rig characters, retarget animations, and provide Fbx/Gltf export, with presets for Unity, Unreal Engine, Godot. First developed as my own in-house rigging tool, i’ve released it a few years ago and it expanded quickly thanks to great support from the community!
