View Full Version : need help linking 2 objects via a rope

10 October 2004, 01:00 PM

I was just wondering if there is a simple way of connecting two objects so that one is dragging the other one, but the rope inbetween them stays taught.

I was thinking of maybe using reactor, but im new to it so it may be difficult. Ive made a ogre who has captured a young maiden and is dragging her along to his dining area. The characters look really cool so I want the animatiion to look equally as good.

Any help would be much appreciated

there would be a few ways to go about it, my first guess would be Reactor, but you could also keyframe the animation, using some bones setup or perahaps a spline IK..I would recomend to read reactors help/tutorials and learn how to use it.
good luck
