View Full Version : Strings Attached

05 May 2006, 03:19 PM

i was wondering if anybody knows how to do objects that are attached to strings/ wires and need to act dynamically.

i'm trying to do something like a marionette puppet but the parts are connected with wires as well (not just hanging) and i'm wondering what the best way is to achieve this.

thanks in advance

I haven't tried this, and assuming you have XSI Adv., perhaps a hard body simulation can be used here. String together several objects like a rag doll.

but how can i setup the strings/ ropes so they react (bend, twist, contract, and so on) and aren't just straight?
