What should be the course outline for an ideal 3D Rigging Course?

3D Rigging Course is  a career Program intended to cater to the increasing demand  of skilled and quality manpower for the ever growing  domestic and International VFX industry . This course is aimed at equipping students with the basic and fundamental skill sets needed for rigging 3D Characters for Production in 3D computer software.

OBJECTIVE
This  Course is a course  that would  help 3D  Students learn how to effectively Create Character rigs for 3D Characters to enable animation of this Characters in a Scene. It would also teach the  concept of skins and how they deform with joint movement and animation.
