View Full Version : help w/ 2 handed carry

02 February 2006, 03:21 AM
I am trying to animate a character carrying a block with both hands. I do not know how to get the hands and block to sinc up. I have tried a parent constraint and this causes the hands (and arms) to move with the block, but the wrists and fingers do not rotate and therefore do not stay in alignment with the surface of the block. Any thoughts? Oh, by the way I'm working in Maya 6. I know it can be done I've seen it done inthe past, I just don't know how.

You could always block out the basic movements with the method you described and then animate the wrist and finger movements yourself to give it a more personal feel.

I don't think that would work. I think there would be some penetration of the block betwen frames and such.
