Hi all,

I need to animate a bendy rectangular object that bounces on it's ends along a path. It's going to look like a bouncing ball with squash & stretch but needs to bounce from one end to the other end and also conform to the arc path. Has anybody done this in messiah before? or similar? Need help on rigging idea.

Thanks

Did you check out the bouncing ball rig I included in the messiah3 content folder. Very simple, but very nice.

Yeah it works with 2.5. It's nothing that fancy, just possibly very suitable. I'll pm it to you.
