MAIN SCENE RIG

Here you have the powerful tool that you never seen to do previs and layout in or out of any pipeline in any Animation Studio.

What is Previs & Layout?

Previs and Layout is all about compositing, timing, cameras, framing, staging, etc... But, in an animation production, you could sum this up into something like this:

"Layout is about putting everything in the right place at the right time".

If you want to put everything in the right place, you are talking about "points in space".

If you want to put everything in the right place at the right time, you are talking about animating each "point in space".

This tool helps you to do this job more easily and saves time when you need to replace an asset, or if you need to make any changes in finding the right composition of your frame. Apart from many other things that we will see with practice.
