The Duik Bassel manual
Besides the tutorials on this website, there are, of course, many other resources you can find to learn more about Duik Bassel. Some of the newest material has been created by Duduf (Nicolas Dufresne) himself. If you’re looking for a manual, he offers two versions, available on lulu.com. Both editions are paperbacks containing 196 pages of information about using Duik.
Also available from Nicolas Dufresne: Duik Bassel: The Source Code Book for $17.95. The following quote is taken from the Lulu.com page where you can purchase this book.
This book contains the complete source code of Duik. It’s a manifesto for open source software. It’s a way to physically show how open source software is different from other software, to show and explain how important it is, how even this small free software may weigh to change the world.
The official character rigging course by Duduf
This video course is 8 hours and 57 minutes long and covers the rigging process (structures, auto-rigging, and the walk cycle). It is intended for people who are familiar with After Effects (layer parenting, effects, pre-compositions, keyframes, interpolation, and the puppet tools). The course is available on tuto.com for $45.00 (at the time of publication).
