Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video The Generic constraint, part of Blender: Creating Rigid Body Simulations (2013).
Take a look at the final constraint type to be examined in this chapter.…we have returned to the simulation test that we have started with.…To help us demonstrate how we could add a little more flexibility…to our simulated motion by making use of the generic constraint time.…Sometimes in simulation work, just that little…bit of extra realism in the range of…motion displayed by our objects can contribute…greatly to increased quality in the final shot.…True, such little…extras often times pass the viewer by.…In that they probably wouldn't be able to…point to specific examples of them in a sequence.…
But these things certainly do add up.…At the subconscious level.…Before we actually start to take a look at the generic constraint itself though, we…do need to examine the object we will be adding into the simulation in this scene.…And essentially points out the big mistake that we…made When we worked with it the first time around.…We have already stated a couple of times in this course.…That, before going ahead and creating rigid bodies from our…
