View Full Version : problem with ulna/radius setup

10 October 2002, 03:16 PM
Hi folks !

I'm testing a setup with ulna/radius under max5.

As the two ends of the radius (the thumb sided bone) are linked xform to a dummy. Then, the bone move, but not its pivot. So its envelop under skin modifier don't move !!
If I link the radius to the arm, then linked xform just the hand end, moves don't works.
I've also tried with a standard mesh, it is the same...

Any info please ? Some way to fix the pivot to the mesh when moving it by subobject level ?

Hi mate,
I checked out the arm rig,
The problem is that you are deforming the ulna bones mesh, and not changing the bones actual position/rotation.
This is why it wont work, well maby it would with bones pro but that's getting a bit crusty and old..
I've been trying to work out this problem for a while and I havent found any perfect solutions but some buddies and I came up with an interesteng method that I have posted as a new thread..

Yeah, the only problem is that deforming a mesh with sibobject level, the pivot don't follow the deformations.

Ok I will check your post ! a link ?

Jeeze that was quick,
Deforming the mesh will never affect the pivot point.

Give me a sec to sort out my thread k
