View Full Version : Character Animation help

12 December 2002, 12:35 PM

I've created a kinda cartoony looking
soldiergirl that I want to animate.
The body is completly modeled under the armour except for the hands. How do I attach the armour so that I only have to animate the body? Can I just link the different pices to it?
Plz help me out how to approach this the best way since I really have to get her rigged soon.
I'll post some more images to get a better view when I get home from school.

the armour is suppossed to be a solid object, so you can't bend it.
If you make it part of the rig, you're going to have problems with that.
So I suggest not to bind the shoulders armour to the rig, but do bind the torso, otherwise its going to be tough to avoit intersections with the armour torso and real torso.

The helmet should be linked to the head.

I tried to just link it but that doesnt work
