how to create a chain link
i tried to model a chain. You can take a look at it in the attached .jpg file called "chain.jpg".
you can see a red hook on the left which is fastened on the ground. on the right there is a green chain link.
ok, now my problem:
everytime i move the green chain link the rest of my chain should also automatically move. but all the chain links should move single and not together, that looks a bit more realistic.
AND another very important fact: The chain links should not be translated or scaled when moving them - only rotated.
i put the maya 5.0 file also in the attachement.
could anyone help me with that problem?
thanks a lot!
