As part of a project I need to do an animated ant.
The model has 6 legs. Every leg has its own bones-system. Each leg has
its own dummy for animation. In addition to that 5 of the legs interact
to one leg via expressions. So I can do a complete walk-cycle by only
moving one dummy. This works great so far. I have connected the six
bones-systems to one terminator-bone. The terminator-bone is linked with
the body of the ant.
What I want to do is move the ant by moving the terminator-bone and have
the walk-cycle go on. I can't get it to work because the dummys don't
follow the terminator-bone. If I link them to the terminator-bone the
walk-cycle doesn't work anymore.
I know this sounds confusing but I don't really know how to explain it
the easy way. Basically what I want is the object to move and walk.
Any solutions ?
