Chain-like motion tutorial


soft.jpgAn interesting tutorial utilizing softbody dynamics to help automatically simulate the motion of a chain moving has been posted over on Blenderartists. It even includes a .blend file for experimenting.

Its a good read and a fun .blend file to play with. I wonder if this could be simplified more by using the new mesh deform modifier. Post your tests, ideas and experiments!

    Nice tutorial, many thanks!
    Hm, Im a bit pissed off. I have had always trouble using softbodies and armatures together, and now I had reallyised, what I was doing wrong. The armature modifier must be befor the softbody modifier! Arrggh! :)
