How To Use Dynamic Joint Chains To Make A Flapping Wing Rig
Learn how to create a flapping wing animation in Cinema 4D.
In this AskGSG, Jake Vardaman asks us how to create a flapping wing animation similar to this lovely piece by Nejc Polovsak.
First, Chris adds dynamics to a joint chain. Then, uses Signal to get the flapping animation working. Then, he binds some simple geometry to the rig to make a flapping wing. Then, Nick experiments with X-Particles to layer some more detail to the final animation.
