View Full Version : Animating a fish fin

04 April 2007, 05:49 PM
Hey i was wondering if anyone had any good advice for animated a tailfin for a goldfish. I am not very experienced with that kind of stuff buy i am doing an internship with one of my teachers and he requested that i create a goldfish. I need to be able to make the fins move fairly naturally. Anyway, any advice is appretiated and maybe a point in a direction on some tutorials. Thanks.
