View Full Version : Help with hands

11-19-2008, 02:51 PM
So, I've run into a bit of a problem. I'm basically replicating this video (, and am having trouble with the hands.

Well, I wouldn't necessarily call it trouble as much as looking for a way to shorten the time spent animating the hands. I've read up on constraints and parenting and whatnot, but the hands don't stay on the staff for very long at all, so there isn't much that simply constraining would help with.

How would you attack this? Multiple constraints? Or just go pretty much FBF at the end?

Why aren`t they stayin on the staff for too long? Are they sliding?

Yes, he's sliding his hands all over the place, changing hand position, spinning the staff, all that jazz. There's points where they stay in one spot for a little bit, but not very long.
