16.2.1

Duik Bassel.2 (16.2.1) available!

The first update of Duik Bassel.2 is already available, which fixes several bugs found after the release of Duik Bassel.2

Some important improvements were also made, especially concerning the brand new Kleaner, which is smarter and has more options for spatial properties. It should now behave quite well even with default values.

Master Properties in After Effects 2020 and Duik Bassel.2

After Effects 2020 has arrived, and Duduf has some good news about it!

In this new version, the Ae team focused on performance, and a lot of different tools have been improved. In turn, it improves the performance of Duik and the rigs made with it. But it’s not only a general gain of speed; I was able to implement an awesome new feature thanks to all of this, and it’s going to change a lot the way you can handle your character rigs and use them in different shots and animations.

Duik 16 will be called Bassel

As we’re near the public release of Duik 16, we’ve been thinking about giving it a name.
16 will stay the version number of Duik, but, at Rainbox, we wanted to drop this number and give it a name, because this is not just an incrementation of Duik, it’s been a complete re-writing of the code, everything has been re-thought and re-built for this version.
So we’re going to show this by giving it a name. Duik 16 will be called Duik Bassel, in memory of Bassel Khartabil Safadi, killed by the Syrian regime in 2015.
