Default How to make something go down to one knee - 02-06-2010, 06:36 PM

I have an assignment to make a knight go down on one knee and am completely lost as to how to do so.

I also have to make him bow and don't know how to.

HELP!

To bow you may just need to turn upper body forward and back up

I have tried to move the upper body forward and I tried that with the knight going down to one knee as well. What happens is the the upper half of the body literally moves forward and leaves the bottom half where it is at.

to go down on one knee, try a combination of different actions in a Do Together. For instance, make the whole rightLeg turn backwards 0.25, while rightLeg.knee (or whatever the knee part is) turn forwards 0.25. Then do leftLeg.knee turn forward 0.25, and also add a command to make the knight move down a little bit.

The best thing to do would be to make it manually, and then save the pose.

right click the knight when he is in the position you want him in, and then do "capture pose". Then the pose will be saved and you can just make a method where when a key (like space) is clicked, he goes into that pose.
