Wing Animation Help

Post by DoctorMeow » Wed Dec 02, 2020 2:15 am

Hello there!

I am trying to animate butterfly wings with the wings moving forward and backward towards the camera. However the flap motor only allows for an up/down motion. I am wondering if you could suggest a way to make the wings look as though they are flying "behind" the character?
I'm definitely new to animation so I appreciate any suggestions very much.

Thank you.

Hello,

For flying "behind the character", I assume you meant if you can have a region mesh be placed behind the character with the body/torso blocking it? In that case it sounds like in rigging mode, you want to move the layer/region mesh ordering to make your wings at the back of your body/torso. Then when the wings are flapping, they will look like they are behind the character.

Thanks
