View Full Version : 2 softimage questions

08-16-2004, 04:35 PM
I have two questions for softimage XSI 4.0

1) how can I let an object follow a null in rotation en translation

2) how can I say to a eff on a rig that it can't move more then certain distance, that he has limits?

1) pose constraint

2) select the joint , under kinematic joint set the rotation limits.

but at question 1, how do I say he should only do it with rotation?

In that case you use the constraint named "Orientation"

about my last question, I have tried it with rotation limits but it doesn't work, I put in a number, set a key en when I rotate it is can go all the way, what am I doing wrong?

I dont know man , check the online manual for rotation limits for step by step explanation.

they work fine here.
