I would like to animate a Marionette. It should be controlled by it´s strings. First thing I tried was to connect a softbody wtih joints. like in a tutorial at 3dcafe:
But how can I fix the length of a softbody?
For example, the cord is slack, you pull it and it´s going to be outstretched. Then the force should be transmitted to a connectet body part. If I do it like in the tutorial above, the softbody is getting longer and longer. I´m blind i think.
My teacher suggests to try it with the cloth module.
Any ideas how to make something like this quite realistic?
Thanks a lot.
