Join Ellery Connell for an in-depth discussion in this video Rigged animation, part of Learning MODO 601.
In this video, we'll have a look at how animation can be rigged or set up so that …individual items are not directly keyframed. …So, in this example, if you Open up the Parenting Start File from your Projects …Folder, you'll see I have an Earth, which is a large sphere and a Moon, little bit …smaller sphere. Not to scale, but you know, hey, we'll go …with that. And if I wanted to make this Moon orbit …the Earth, it would be probably easy enough to go and set up keyframes, so …that it's here, and then here, and here and here and here.…
But getting an exactly circular path could be a little bit challenging. …There are a couple of different ways that you can actually go about this, and the …first way to get one objects behavior to follow another object is by simple parenting. …So, if I wanted to do that, I could just take the Moon here. …And I want to make it a child of the Earth. …So, all I'd have to do for that is take the moon, drag it up onto the earth. …And you see I get that orange arrow to the left side. …
