Link biped Bone to external Object
show user profile  HG
Hi Everyone,
I have a Character with biped to control. Now I have another external object that has some animation, and I want to link the head of the biped to my external object, but it is not that easy that I thought of it in first place. Can anyone help me ?
tnx in advance

Might need to stop relying on biped. It's a standalone animation rig inside of 3ds max and it's limited because of that. If you want full control, you'll need to start making and rigging your own setups. It takes about an hour to learn how to do it, and you'll have to use skin in conjunction with it most likely, unless you have some other modifier based deformation system. Good luck!

It may be as simple as linking object to a dummy and then link dummy to head.
If you need to unlink it at some stage though you will need to use link constraint. as per below.
And, like Hanzz said, biped is limited and outdated.

@ Hanzz, Fuck off it takes an hour to learn how to rig a human, not even close.

Well, I had only basic knowledge of it beforehand, at the time I watched two videos on advanced rigging. I followed along, and it took about an hour to have a fully articulated, multi-control rig. Not including facial rigging, which is much more focused. Skinning a humanoid mesh for me at least is another matter.
