hey guys, i was wondering, i have seen various animations with balls and the classic flour bag and boxes. Also things like pendulums like these (http://martinkirkhaug.blogspot.com/2006_02_01_martinkirkhaug_archive.html) (session 106) also, is that pendulum IK or FK. Does anyone know where to get a rig like these, or if they are really easy to make, could you point me to a tutorial, tell me how or *flinches* make me one? as usual, any help would be appreciated.

thanks again

The pendulum rig is all FK.

Really simple to make. The geometry is primitives, and then just throw in some joints, link up some nurbs controllers if u want, and voila! Your very own pendulum rig!

Just thought... you probably dont even need bones, just parent them to each other and it should work from there!
