Using Two Handed Props in Mocap Animation


Jan van den Hemel writes:

When you’ve recorded a motion capture animation of a character holding a sword or some other weapon with both hands, the hand positions may not be exactly where you want them to be. You can manually adjust the hand animation, but a much easier and more accurate method uses IK Bone Constraints. It’s pretty easy to set up if you know how.
