At Rainbox, the tools we use are shared for free and – a tool without explanation being a bit useless – we try to help people use those tools.
And we like to share our techniques, we like to not have any trade secret, and simply helping our neighbours.
So, here are some ways to train with us!
When buying it, you support the development and free sharing of Duik!

Training, conferences, schools
Teaching is important at Rainbox; it is a good way to share and exchange views and techniques, very rewarding both for students and teachers…
We sometimes hold some conferences, for example about Duik, animation and our techniques, or about free software, our activities, or about our principles and our cooperative structure… Contact us if you want us to orgnize a conference together!
You can watch some of our conferences in video.
We like to teach in different schools to share our techniques and experience.
We can teach in the field of expertise of each member of Rainbox, including Duik and animation with After Effects, compositing with After Effects (for 2D or 3D), rigging with 3DS Max, 3D animation, editing (with Lightworks, Avid or Premiere), directing an animated film, production, development…
These are some schools where we already teach (all are in France):
Do not hesitate to contact us to ask us to come to your school!
We teach professionnals with Carpe Media, a training center in Lille, France. See this page in French for more information.
At Rainbox, our tools are freely shared, and as a tool without explanation is not really useful, we also provide free support of the tools. We strongly support free software.
We’re always looking for new ways to fund all this work, trying to stay nice, honnest, and useful. (you can read this article (in French) or watch this conference (in French too, sorry!)).
We currently offer three ways of supporting us:
• Donations are the easiest and more efficient way to help.
• A shop is available to show your support.
• Crowdfunding sometimes help us to fill our needs.
To help the free release of these tools, the production of tutorials and user guides, and all other non-profit actions, you can make a donation.
