MotionBuilder Physics: Ragdoll Tricks for Production : now up on the Area

MotionBuilder Physics: Ragdoll Tricks for Production

Well it took a little while to get up but thanks to the hard working folks at Autodesk that had to edit/compress and publish this latest tutorial ( MotionBuilder Physics: Ragdoll Tricks for Production) you can now go and
watch how to creatively use the physics solver in your animation. This will take you from start to end in creating a mixed final motion blending both motion capture and simulation.
It does not go step by step over all the physics options but it shows you a fast and effective way to start useing the new solver tools in MotionBuilder 2009.
I hope you find some use out of it, I had a good deal of fun making this video, simulation can sure be fun when it is realtime.If you like these tutorials and find them useful then drop note on the comments here on the blog or at the Autodesk website.

This will be the last free tutorial going up from me at the moment but keep checking back here on the blog for tips/links and tricks as well as some other "free samples" from
the DVD class.

p.s. the other post on this blog about physics is this tip: Constrained Ragdoll in Motionbuilder 2009

I fixed the link/updated it. It is working for me now, but it gave me the error the first time I linked to it.

I am not sure what is going on as autodesk is still updating the new Area website.

genuwine motion builder tutorials are extremly hard to find. that's one good software but the learning curve isn't smooth at all.
