Install

Ragdoll for Blender is a bridge between Ragdoll Core and Blender, and ships as a platform independent Addon.

To install the addon, you do what you'd normally do for addons, via the "Install" button in Blender's preferences.

  1. In Blender, go to Edit > Preferences...
  2. Go to the Add-ons page
  3. Click Install.. and select RagdollBlender.zip you downloaded above
  4. Search for Ragdoll
  5. Enable the Addon

Next, you'll need Ragdoll Core. Which is the engine that performs the actual physics computations.


Upgrade

When a new version of Ragdoll hits the shelves, here's what you do.

  1. Remove your existing Ragdoll Addon
  2. Follow the above Install steps


Licence

Upon loading the addon, Ragdoll will automatically start the clock on a 1-month trial.

To carry on from your trial, you can purchase a new licence via our website.

You'll receive a serial which you can enter via the bottom item of the Ragdoll menu.
