I am brand spanking new to Blender. I downloaded about 4 weeks ago. I’ve gone thru several of the tutorials and I have a basic understanding of the process so far.
I am trying to use Blender animations to help students learn Judo techniques.
I followed the tutorial by Alimayo Arango to set up a low poly male figure and now have my 2 characters in a condition where I can start to do some of the techniques. I have also turned on the Physics module.
My problem is that in the areas where I set up “attachments” from one character to the other ( I made the arm of the White figure a child of the hand of the Red figure), the arm rigging separates from the shoulder as the animation progresses. The body mesh just acts like Gumby and stretches. In a later portion of the technique there is an interaction of the legs of the 2 characters. In this situation, the 2 legs just pass thru each other.
Does anyone have experience with interaction between 2 characters that may be helpful here?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
