View Full Version : change the center like in CharacterStudio

08 August 2004, 04:24 PM
I tried to change the center of an object, in order to animate the object. I wanted to create something like in character studio in 3dsmax where you can move the pivot point of the hands or the feet while you animate. So I created a scrpt, but it doesn't work, a little bit too complexe. I did something interesting, but not complete.
If anyone find anything....

Add a null as Parent to the object. You can animate the null and at the same time translate the object relative to the null to effectively translate the pivot point. Hope that helps.

thanks for your reply, but what I did before was similar: I used the pivot center and its compensation. It works only if the animator never makes changes to his animation, what is impossible...of course!
