I'm new to maya and I'm running in to a problem. I have a radio geometry and an antenna that has a joint chain that is controlled by a hair-follicle system. There's to things i want to achieve. First I want the base of the antenna to be attached to the radio. SO when i deform the radio with a lattice the base will stay in it's place and move along. Second I want the deformations of the radio geometry to affect the shape of my antenna. Like a hair. How do i parent or constraint these two elements together? I want to animate the lattice on my radio and have maya dynamically animate the antenna.
Can anybody help me with this. Basically it's like attaching a tail to a torso. The antenna runs dynamically with a hair follcile system linked to a joint chain/control curve. I used this tutorial to make it.
I just want it to move along with the torso/radio geometry when i move or deform it.
