Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

Maya object picking issue

Hi friends,

Can anyone help me out to solve my issue with maya. thats really very strange.

i wanna pick up a prop to my character hand on particular time and wanna drop on particular time. i m wondering, there is no easy tool to do this in maya like in max "Add link" assign controller.

I could find one tutorial but its too long to do just only pickup an object.

so, please help me out to solve my problem i thankful to them.

Thanks,
Jatin Soni

Apply a parent contraint on the hand of your character (or an invisible object in the same place as your character's hand) then keyframe when you want the constraint on and off, aka when you want it holding the object and when you want it too fall or whatever you are going to do to it.

Hope this helps.
