Animate without bones?

PostPosted by Speike » Fri Feb 03, 2017 11:33 pm

Hi there I was wondering if I can animate: Let's say hard surfaces without bones?
If yes would anyone mind showing a quick tut?
Thanks :)

I do not think, just put a bone by object with the pivot at the right place.

This is for a robot?

mechanical part?




sorry for my bad english, i use google traduction, i'm FR :mrgreen:

Hehe NP :) I can understand french and speak maybe a few words, but I can't type in it. So the answer is yes,it is a mechanical part. The Object should orbit around another, lets say a Planet like Saturn`s Ring or satellite. You are right it works fine with the a simple bone. I just thought I could speed a few things up, because adding bones to every part takes a long time, I'd prefer to just select the objects like in a 2D animation Program and Drag and drop by key frame. I don' think it is nessary to have bones for all parts.It woulde be a nice to have a option to animate without them.

Like Lets say
1) bone creator
2) skinning/binding
3) animateing/ Just straigt non bone animateing.
Like Spriter Pro. :roll: :geek: :D

here is something what I am talking about.

Hello Speike,

Yes, today to animate a full rigid character, let's say a robot, you need to create a skeleton and attached vertices to 1 instead of animating directly a parented hierarchy of meshes.
I am not sure that you would save so much time by working directly on meshes as you still need to place/orient correctly your meshes pivot and need to parent them too. It is a different way to proceed but quite similar in a sense.
However we will consider this request.

Thanks,
Aurelien
