PSR constraint need 'Priory' explaining?

Recommended Posts

Dear C4D-ers

 

I am working on a complex hand animation, where you pick one thing up then take the cap off. Put the cap on the table. etc etc. It is a long animation with a lot of hand interactions. I won't attempt to explain everything it is long.

 

I am using R17 at the moment, I am trying to use the PSR constraint tag, with 'maintain position' on to do this type of animation. However, I have bumped into this 'expression priory' problem. So there will be certain objects lagging behind where they are meant to be. 

 

I have seen on another thread that up-ing 'expression priority' settings can help and does with the first object. How are objects psr expressions numbered to get the best results? I don't fully understand the pattern of numbering? Or why a high number is better than a low number?

 

My other question is that our media dep might upgrade to R19. Have a lot of these problems been solved with R19?

 

I am new to this type of animation, so there is a degree of experience lacking I'm sure, but any advice would be appreciated? In particular will upgrading help or a longer but workable method with the R17?

 

Best regards

Have you read the bit in the manual that explains about priorities ? Search for 'priority'. I can't explain it better than that can !

And TBH you are asking too wide a question, because the right answer will be different for every scene you make.

No, these are not problems, and don't require solving ! Priorities remain as helpfully customisable as they are in your version !

    If help isn't installed you should reinstall the software. Or look in the version at help.MAXON.net, although that is having certificate errors at the moment...
