hey, noob here.i'm working on a rig for a character how do i make it so i can move the bone like i did in the right screenshot in edit mode? this should be simple but i cant figure it out. i want the two outer points to stay at the same location when i move the middle one.thanks allot!
Make a chain of 3 bones.Put an empty at the tip of the top bone.Select the armature and go into edit mode. Select the lowest bone. Press alt+c to clear the parent.Go into pose mode and select the lower bone. Add "strech to" constraint. Target:Armature, Bone: middle bone.Then, select the upper bone. Add "strech to" constraint. Target: empty.You are done.
>>650642thanks but will this also work if i try to export it into a unity game?
>>650741unity anon here.Yes if your model is humanoid you could make animations there.If its like not a humanoid you could use legacy for that.either way i prefer learning to animate in unity if its human since there are tools to help you close fingers etc. like that. Hope this helps.
>>650743thanks for your reply but i dont really think it does. im working on a game with cutscenes. i dont think your solution will work because i want to render out the cutscenes.i want the tubes in my screenshot to stick at their connections when i move the head with an extra point of control so the tubes dont go through each other
>>650746I'd try to do it with a stretchy IK setup, including a pole target. You can do it with rigify.
