View Full Version : smooth animation and exploding polygons

I am trying to get some skin to tear off my character's head as a pole is pushed through it, but I don't know how to break apart the polygons so they appear to tear apart.

I am also having trouble getting my animation to run smoothly. It appears quite jerky.

All of this is probably because I am still trying to teach myself Lightwave and don't know the program well enough.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks,
Betsy

That is a really strange request and I am not sure how you would do it. As for the running there are a whole lot of good IK and IK Booster tutorials both on this forum and at various other places you should try some.

Thanks for the reply, I'll try the Ik and IK booster tutorials--didn't even know to go there.

Thanks again.
