View Full Version : Spring Controller from Max

08-05-2002, 09:51 AM
is there an equivalent for the spring controller from Max in XSI??
Basically, the spring controller gives autimatic secondary motion to a child upon animating the parent's trnasforms. Very useful tool...

thanks, I'll check it out

OK..I checked it out..It's very nice, but not quite the same thing...
Using the Spring controller, the distance between the 2 constrained objects is not constant, whereas using this technique, it is constant...
I'll keep looking
