View Full Version : Need help with shoulder deformation!

01-08-2006, 07:31 PM
Hello all!

Been a while since i last posted here and i am very much hoping someone can help me out!
For a job, i needed to model and animate a simple 3d lion character and while that has turned out ok, i just get stuck on the rigging and animating part.

Ive included 3 pictures, the first and second showing the model and the 3rd with the problem, where you see the chest in a weird deformed way.
It probably looks like a rookie mistake, which it is, because ive never been able to properly rig a shoulder to bend well.

Ive absolutely no idea how to fix this problem and mocca is something im not familiar with at all.
Since the animation itself was not going to be that complex, i was just trying to get a simple forward kinematic thing going on, with the simple vertex maps thing.
I use cinema 4d 9 and mocca is installed, should anyone know of a simple way to do it in there.

I really have no clue on how to get this right and have searched for anything shoulder deformation wise, but havent found it.

Thanx in advance!
