Hi all,

anyone have a link to a tutorial, or just feel like sharing how to rig a rolling sphere? Basicly I'd like to be able to move a sphere around and have it roll along correctly.

I'm using xsi but at I'll take what ever I can get and translate it if need be.

There was one done for Max that could easily be converted to XSI. Darned if I know where it is now how ever... Just had a brain storm and found it. http://www.cuneytozdas.com/tutorials/maxscript/

Thanks Paul,

I currently have a set up that works in much the same way, I'm trying to get around being dependant on a curve. Not to worry I've been give a hint about how to do it with a scripted op in xsi so I'll give that a go.

I don't beleive that the method I posted requires a curve at all. I would have to go through it again to be sure.
