constraints
show user profile  griffinanimator
Hi all,
First off I am glad to be here. I have been working as a technical artist for many years but this is my first time using Max. I am trying to port over a face rigging concept I have used in Maya but am having trouble finding the proper constraint. In Maya there is a point constraint that basically lets one object control the position of another. The point constraint has a maintain offset flag which means that the constrained object will retain it's offset from the constraining object. Does something like this exist in Max?

That'd be the position constraint that you assign to the position track. You can then add one or more targets, adjust their weight and keep the initial offset or not.

edit: I need to type faster :'\
