throwing pieces of wood
on Aug 18, 2010 at 12:14:11 am

Hi
I have a pile of wood each piece an individual file. my green screened guy is bending over and picking them up and throwing them over his shoulder. I can attach the wood to his hand no problem and have it look like he is picking it up but I am having trouble making the release speed and revolution look real.

Is there some way to match the speed defined by the tracker on the hand and extend it onward? Or do I just have to go through trial and error with an average parameter and gravity?

thanks for any advice

I'm not sure why your talent didn't pick up real wood and save you the trouble but I bet you have a reason. I think you would be best keyframing it once it leaves the talents hand. Best of luck.

I am in the middle of tokyo in a tiny studio. I just didnt have the room to throw it far enough to make it worthwhile.

Anyway I guess Ill just plug away with the keyframes

Thanks
