Guys! Ive uploaded a little demonstration video of BlenRig. It is a brief Overview of its capabilites, and hopefully it will be able to clarify any doubts you might have about the system. (This is not the tutorial yet!!)

If you want you can directly download the original video at the bottom of that page.

Ive noticed sound problems when playing the video in VLC on Linux, but Mplayer plays it just fine.
