Hi Everyone, I’ve been testing out Ragdoll and it has been amazing.
Im in the process of trying to figure out how to animate with it and would like to ask for help regarding this short clip.
What would be the best way in animating a scene like this? I currently just posed the first frame with Live Mode, then put a Pin on the Tentacles on the tree.
I animated the main root control roughly to simulate swinging on the tree and jumping. The root Joint has a Kinematic Behavior.
When it jumps - I want it to curl inwards - but it’s quite hard to pose when you can’t tweak it in real time. Then I want it to curl inwards just before it reaches the branch and then turn on the Pin constraint again so the hands attach to the tree.
It’s also quite hard to get the proper physics/gravity setting. Each time it’s either looks zero gravity or very heavy and I see the arms detach.
It’s been amazing to see the fast feedback of the physics however it’s unpredictable specially with posing.
How can I animate and pose on certain frames so I have control on the overall motion?
Thanks and I’m looking for learn and integrate it more in my workflow.
