I found this question popping up again and again, so I'd probably just create a post answering it eventually.
First off, this rig is open source (if one can call a character rig that), so you are allowed to do everything you want with it, which includes any change to the rig, or its appearance, porting it to other software packs, and using it for commercial work.
However, please respect that many creative people poured efforts into the project. In return, they welcome respect for their time.
So please, if you're using it for your own project, which is very fine if you do, credit the community for it. We'd also like to see what Eleven has been up to. Post your efforts on the 11secondclub.com forum or the official Eleven Rig facebook page for us all to marvel at.
We understand that you can't roll extensive credits on a commercial project, so, in exchange of saving a lot of money for not having to create a fully rigged character, you should ideally give some of the enhancements you might have made on the rig back to the community, but at least agree that you NEVER solely credit yourself (and charge money) for anything on this rig that is not 100% your own work.
We must also ask you to refrain from using the rig for any of the following:
- any content which is is pornographic, sexually explicit, lewd, obscene, or excessively violent (everything that goes past cartoon violence, basically)
- promotes or condones illegal activities,
- incites hate or violence against an ethnic, religious, or protected group
- political or religious statements of any kind.
The last is a bit mushy, I do understand that, but if the animation you create is fit to make someone angry, it's something we don't like the Eleven Rig to be a part of. Even if you don't like the person you're making angry.
Thanks for understanding, and keep on animating!
