Animation Question
show user profile  rob@dynamic
Hi all,

Quick question....

I was wondering how to animate a habd writing on paper. I have a human arm/hand rigged so animating that is no problem, I was wondering how I would attach a pen to this? So the pen would move with the hand?

Cheers

Surely you cant have rigged a whole hand without knowing what the link tool does?
