3DS Max - Bones

(What Not Media) #1

This is more of a 3DS Max question than a Sketchfab issue, but I haven’t been able to find a solution anywhere. I am trying to animate a hose that bends in certain spots dependent on the rotation of several different objects it is attached to. This affects each of the specific vertices of the hose separately. Any suggestions/tutorial links would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!

I’m afraid I don’t have any experience with animation in 3ds Max. Maybe @waleguene can offer some links to tutorial resources.

Hi @WhatNotMedia,

I’m not really familiar with animation in 3dsMax either. Maybe you already tried but in case, I would try to play with IK animations, explained here:

I hope it helps,

I appreciate the response. I agree that the IK animations are probably the right answer, just haven’t figured it all out yet. I’ll check out the videos you sent. Thanks for the links!

Best Regards,
