  • What would be the best method making something thrown up in the air, and cos off gravity falling back down?

    (gravity part should be easy, but how to combine it with something/someone throwing it upwards first ??)

    don't quote me on this, but I did a little dynmaics a while back and I think you key frame the gravity so you could have negative gravity liftiung them up then positive pulling them back dowm later on.

    apply a velocity or force on the rigid tab that should be easy

  • thought of that, but the object should follow the hand (f.ex.) for a while till hand is at highest point, then it should follow his way with a initial velocity and slow down due to the gravity, then eventually go back downwards faster and faster due to this same gravity: i am not going to keyframe this !!! laugh.gif i am too lazy.

    try to use a adriver, normally u dont use dynamics on character animation, the handf follows the ball. not the ball follows the hand :P else u try to attach a spring with it. that way yo can link keyframed with dynamics.

    You don't use dynamics for something like this.

    There was a thread where CactusDan showed a small movie about a hand throwing a ball up and down. Part of his new plugin update is going to allow this to be accomplished really easily. The trick with anything like this is to make the hand look like it is actually holding the ball before it lets go, etc...
