Swing Animation with Deformers

Recommended Posts

Hey mates!

 

I'm trying to accomplish a swing animation here, with bend and a bit of twist deformers moving the chains of the swing (it might b easier to group them and rotate the group, but that looks cheesy).

The thing sitting on the swing isn't supposed to be deformed tho, but it should follow the position and Rotation of it -see the capital on the rotate? it's becaouse that i couldn't get done yet. With xpresso u can track the position of a vertex if the pla is baked, but i can't get the normals to be fed into rotation info yet at all.

How woudl you get this done?

 

 

Please help me swing :D

best

  • Hey Hrvoje

     

    Your example scene doesn't play on my r19, how did you got here tho? What's moving the swing?

    Here's my quiet simpler scene, finally got the file size right

    Ah, I see. The issue is I have built the scene using R20 and field node. You can replace the field node in Xpresso with similar setup and that will drive the values too

    @Wacskamati your 4 chain swing would move like a parallelogram in real life ie seat horizontal. Maybe that's the look you're after ::):
