In this tutorial, I demonstrate how to use my own free Blender addon to simplify the process of using action constraints in order to rig a character’s head turn. My addon automates the process of adding action constraints to individual bones, saving time and allowing for a similar efficient workflow as 2D cutout animation software.

This tutorial covers the basics of using the addon, as well as more advanced techniques and a discussion of the problem the addon was designed to solve. I also provide tips on how to achieve better results with the mixed actions and explain the difference between global, local, and custom space.
