Creating a moving target with the Slide constraint

Having seen how we can easily set up a basic rigid constraint in MassFX and make it breakable, we are now going to move on to something a little more visually interesting. One brilliant thing about constraints in MassFX is that they can help us create some very interesting, even complex- looking background or ambient motions as I like to call them, without having to hand-animate everything. In this video we will see how we can take some simple seesaw keyframe animations and use them to create dynamic moving targets.

We will also demonstrate an alternative workflow from the ones we have used so far. In fact, what we will do is create our rigid body modifiers, constraints, and set up the proper parent-child relationship in just a few short steps. Let's go ahead then and select the two objects that we want to constrain together. The actual order in which we pick them here is important as the object we select first will become the parent in the constraint relationship, whilst the second o...
