View Full Version : reusable rig

05 May 2005, 12:10 AM
How do use a rig with different geometry?

I'm starting real simple with just a bone deform on a sphere, 3 bones.
Went into animate to test, works fine.

I load another sphere, hide the first sphere, and slide the Skeleton item (parent) down onto the second sphere, but moving bones in animate has no effect on the second sphere.

Obviously there is more to it than that ... if it's even possible :)

Been a while since I've done this, but I believe that - in Setup Mode - you will see that on the right hand side your Bone_Deform effect is applied to the first sphere. Select the Bone_Deform effect in the left hand panel, then CTRL select the second sphere. Click Add at the top - this should add the second sphere as a target of the Bone_Deform effect - e.g. objects it will deform.

To remove the first sphere from the Bone_Deform, select the first sphere on the right hand panel and click the Remove button at the top.

Hope I've remembered this correctly for you. Please advise if you still have problems.
