Can someone teach me how to achive this effect. I want my character to grasp or grab or handle a banana on a table and then suddenly he unhandle it on another table.

I don't beleive this post belongs to dynamics section !!!

However you can constrain your banana to 2 locators, One of them parented to the character's hand and the second one free to animate. ( Point conctraints )

Then when your char's hand gets to the banana set the constarin weight to follow the hand locator and when you want him to drop it change the weight to the other locator, And animate the other locator.

Wish it works for you .
