I’m going to throw this one in as well. Animating with Adobe After FX.

Here is a video breaking down a rig for Puppet Animation. Personally I’m okay with it if it is creative and good.

Because of this I’m okay with this type of animation if done correctly.
Here is a tutorial breaking down a rig.

I loved watching this tutorial. It was pretty neat seeing how things are done in the making of this show.

I love how this guy breaks it down Anime style. His stuff looks really good.
Grab some tools and get to it. The power is in your hands.
