I found a tutorial about how to pick up and drop objects and while I didn’t initially understand it, I eventually got it to work.
…but what if you want to use both hands on the object in two different locations? …and you want to animate the object and have it move the hands instead of the other way around?
Here is what I want to do. I have this little robot that I have rigged. I’ve already done an animation with him picking up a toolbox, but now I want to have him use a push broom. I was thinking that if I could just somehow parent the hands to the broom and animate the broom, the hands would follow. Maybe this is the wrong approach, but it seems like it would be easier than trying to animate two hands with two different grips in two different locations on the handle of the broom.
Any thoughts on this situation?
