Hello all, I'm looking for a tutorial to bone and animate a bird wing, the complete cycle. I imported a wing model from Poser's Winter Queen. It looks pretty clean. I searched but could not find a detailed tutorial.

Thanks.

are you looking for a rigging tutorial or an animation tutorial?

can you post a image of the the wing in question so we can determine of you need to rig up feathers or just a whole wing.

something like this?

Okay, here's the model. I want to include the rush of wind in the downstroke to affect the lead feathers (fingerlike extensions).

Thanks.
