View Full Version : Eye lid

08 August 2002, 05:28 PM
Hey guys. I cant find anything about this on the forums but is anyone know what would be the better to make an eye lid setup. Not a cartoon one with th eye lids seperated from de head but one with the eye lid in the the model. Maybe bones, maybe shapes? I'm looking for the more techniques possible to elaborate the one that fit me best. Cya

I know it would probably work well but I was wandering if anyone had any new setup idea that i've never heard of. Just to perfect my knowledge. I'm always awared of new techniques to use and that's what I'm seeking here.

you can use Set driven key and use an expression to make the eyes blink every soo often.... do you know about that one....

Or you can create a pose in trax that might be wierd though ...ive never tried that....but i guess it's possible

Use bones - that way you'll get a radial motion rather than a linear one, which will stop the eyeball popping through.

how about some clusters, with a pivot in the centre of the eyeball.
and animators will have more possibilitys, if needed.
