    This course guides you through the technical details of the Second Life Skeleton. We explain how rigging and weighting works in general. This knowledge is the foundation for a much better understanding of the workflows and could help you to create your own SL compatible characters, attachments and animations with more confidence. The course is split into 7 lessons which build up on each other. The lessons are of varying complexity and length. We expect that an average learner needs about a week to work through the content of the course. An accompanying course Video is included (with Closed Captions) The course video contains a brief self contained introduction into all topics which are covered in much greater detail within the course lessons.
