View Full Version : Easy riding?

10 October 2003, 07:57 AM
hi guys,

I'm looking for some guidance on how I make my first rigged character ride the lovely 18 speed mountain bike he was built for.

The bike has functional wheels, chain, pedals, & handle bars. I'm just wondering if there are any fundermental constraints or groupings of the character, the bike, or both that have to occur.

help would be sssso cool.

Thanx in anticipation :wavey:

I would say put ik thru the legs and group them to the pedals, then group the waist to the seat. And I thinck that should do it.

Could it be that I am a twit or something much ruder?

It seems, foolishly, I put a biped system in my character.
Should I scrap that and only have IK in the legs, or utilise the biped foot and pevis components?

As previously...

Thanx in anticipation:blush:

Well I really dont know what to tell you about that. I say try to work with what you have, just try to make it work. And next you will do better. Trail and error..:thumbsup:
