    absolutely great! i ask you a question: can i modify it a little bit (add clothes and hair, customize it a little bit to give it some particular character) and use it in an animation for youtube or do you consider that "commercial use"? Thank you very much!

    OF COURSE I WILL GIVE YOU CREDIT AS THE CREATOR OF THE MODEL AND RIG, LINK TO YOUR NETWORKS AND EVERYTHING YOU WANT. I don't intend to take advantage of your work, but to enjoy animating it, which is what I like to do the most.

    That's totally fine! "Non-commercial" just means you don't make money from using it. So no ad revenue from the youtube video. But absolutely feel free to tweak it and modify it to suit your needs! I hope this answer helps, and I wish you the best of luck on your animation! I means a lot to hear from people who are excited to use the rig in their projects :D

    Oh no! It works fine for me in 2.93. Maybe check if you need the newest version of Blender? Also if your computer is older, it might just not run well or cause crashes. Settings like Simplify in the Render Properties panel may help with this. I'm terribly sorry if that's the case since that would mean I didn't optimize the file very well and that you may need to find a simpler lower-poly rig to use. I hope this helps!

    I'm not able to make a full making-of tutorial, but I did make an hour long video on my youtube channel detailing certain aspects of how I made the rig. In the description are several links to other rigging tutorials I found most helpful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxkzsX0Rb7Q

    Hello! Does the Lip Sync not show up in Blender 3.0? I'd love to use this rig it looks so impressive!!

    Yeah, I'm sorry if that was appealing. I opted for a more standard UI when I updated the rig. No more floating panels like the "lip sync" controller. Here's the video explaining the changes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mss2guc8XRs&t=194s (I thought I added it to this post. sorry!)

    I kinda like the cartooniness of the rig.
