So right now I'm working on breaking apart the bones for a character I'm CATRigging. The one thing giving me pause is these lil ribbons here. The design calls for the tools on the end to be weighted so they jingle around on the ropes during animation, and I can imagine key framing that would be insane.So... I'm about to make the right thigh bone and wondering how I handle these. Should I include them in the right thigh bone, or make them their own limb? Make each quad in the rope its own bone? I ask because currently they are completely unaccounted for in my CATRig, which is just a basic spine and pelvis routine. Since this is for use in a game, it might be worth mentioning the game is being made in Unity.Any and all help would be appreciated forever.
A turn around so it's easier to understand what you're looking at.
>>522804This'll be no help to you, but having come from stop motion animation and being part of the "do it the hard way" school of thinking I feel you should take complete creative control over your danglies and keyframe them. Maybe someone will come up with a clever answer after I post.
>>522804>>522805I'm a noob but isn't this the sort of thing that's handled by drivers or whatever?Like isn't jangling tools the lesbian cousin of boob physics? Sorry if I'm a retard
>>522804Nice model, reminds me of Oni.I don't think you need that many quads on those ribbons. I would make it like this:
>>522804Just make sure they are seperate objects and then use cloth on them. Defijne the hard parts as hard and the soft parts as soft and it will jangle automatically. If you dont like the cloth performance hit either program or buy somewhere some chain alternative.
>>522804Create the bones, but don't animate them. If necessary, make a new root bone and parent those ribbons to it.When you import into unity, create some spring/hinge joints and attach them to the different bones in the ribbons. Parent those joints to a hip bone or something and you're off to the races.You probably want to have the bones for the ribbons all at the same level, so individual bones for each section. Otherwise, you can just flatten out the bone tree in Unity later.
>>522805i dig your textures bro.
>>522805Really nice style man.
>>522805I really like this. It reminds me of MegaMan Legends.
>>522805Scrolling this is giving me some pretty trippy p-frame artifacts.
