See Details
Released Oct 1, 2012
In this series of Maya tutorials we will learn techniques for animating a grappling hook in Maya. Our goal is to create an efficient rig with a sufficient amount of control. We'll learn how to, then, animate this prop, and its rope to behave naturally. We'll also learn how to work with a set of rigging and animation tools in Maya that will help us produce a very entertaining outcome. By the end of this tutorial, you will have the skills needed to animate your very own grappling hook.
