Constraint Questions
show user profile  peterjung
Hi All

I am trying to figure out how I can constrain the movement of the two different ends of a rod to two different paths.

See the following picture:



From the position shown I need the rod to move with each end following the path of the respective red circle. Obviously this is only possible over a portion of each path. From the position shown each rod end will need to follow say 20% of the total path (circle) length.

I can easily constrain one end using a patch constraint but I can't figure out how I can constrain the movement of both ends?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
