That will be very useful. I have a question though... Can you offset the distance it is from the mesh? I notice the ball objects are intersecting the sticky surface object. Can you apply an offset to raise it so it's skating along the surface and not through it?

proton answered this question over on spinquad with this...

sure...easiest way I can think is to just move the pivot point. that is what is actually sticking to the surface.

I suppose the best way will be parenting to a null which is the actual item affected by sticky motion. I mean, parenting is usually the "good" way to avoid moving a pivot point around.

Great, this is an useful tool. Can we use this to make foot steps on the surface of bumpy mashes ?

Reminds me of an old thread I did.

And I just thought I had motion setups all wrong.

Well for future use sticky will come in handy.

What about using bones on the sticky surface or does it have to be rigid?

I was wondering how many sticky objects is it possible to have? I can only assume that we can have just the one? and as many sticky objects as we wish.

Would be great if there was some way to choose which surface the sticky objects stick to!

now if we could animate pivot point over time

Does this work before or after IK?

Is It blendable on and off?

Are you **** kids still using that term these days?
