Re: mc 12: give it some swing

hey kiopaa, really love the squash and stretch you put into this animation. Perhaps if you have time at the end, as a final polish use a deformer and bend the racquet to stretch that too smile

Re: mc 12: give it some swing

I like it!
I just seems the racket hits something in midair on frame 86 (like I said before) and gets diverted from there. Doesn't seem very natural, you might want to address that.

Cheers!

Re: mc 12: give it some swing

Thanks thelittlepenguin84, it's a good idea to add some stretch on the racquet, I will try at the end.
Here is the 1st pass of polish :

I spent a lot of time today to try to fix the gimbal lock problem on F53, but I didn't succeed. Do you have an internet address where I can find a method ?
I tried also to make a good arc on the racquet on F86 like wolfor said. A lot of work remains !

Re: mc 12: give it some swing

Hi!
Looks much better now! The direction in which the racket is going wouldn't have been my first choice, but that's just a matter of opinion big_smile
About the Gimbal lock:
In order to avoid it, you need to set the rotation order right, and always the least used axis first and the most used axis last.
Doing this now is probably going to make you redo a major part of your hand animation, so I'm sorry about that. Another thing that might come in handy is the euler filter in the graph editor's Curves menu. If you utilize that, you need to have all rotation curves selected so maya can calculate the most effective curves for your animation.

Hope this helps.

cheers!

I tried my best to fix gimbal lock problems, but the rotations was not set in the right order. I made modifications to the rig, ready for the next animation !
Thanks again for all your advices (and thanks for understanding my poor english !)

I wasn't able to do some amendments that I wanted to do to it, but I'm happy with how this one looks. Thanks to everyone for the awesome feedback! Much appreciated!
Looking forward to the sneezing challenge now!
