Walk like an Octopus...

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I need to animate long tentacles waving like an Octopus under water. There use to be a plug-in to assist with this. Anyone remember what it was and if it’s still available?

Thanks,

Rusty

That doesn't soudnd familiar. Do you still need to rig the legs?

Hi Rob!

Yeah, I remember the plugin from long ago it was pretty cool. I'm sure I have it on my desktop but the disk went out. Probably wouldn't work anymore.

Rig the legs? Yes and I don't remember how!! I've decided just to pose the beast not animate it.I need to grab the end of the bone chain and move the entire bone chain from there. Kinematic something???

Something as long as a tentacle will need more than just the end control

If you are familiar with TSM2, that will do "tails" and you can have as many tails as you want.
