Anybody have advice on how to set up a chain weapon like Kratos uses in God of War?
I'm using Max and have tried rigging everything from FK to IK spline to a combination of both but can't get the results I want.
The chain swords in the GoW series have such great, clean arcs when animated. I'm a character animator and don't know much about rigging unfortunately.
Any tips or advice is welcome.
Cheers,

Art
