adding additional rotation to bone

Post by jamination » 26 May 2011, 22:12

Is it possible to have a controller, let's say a finger rotation where I can manual rotate the bone, but can also add to the rotation from another slider or controller as an expression (or whatever), all in the one controller (without parenting). I have a rig (that is complete) that I want to add additional controls to the finger rotations while still being able to manual changes rotation.

Yes, you just type something like nullA.kine.local.rotz + nullB.kine.local.rotz , or whatever like this.
I've tried this many times for envelope deformers.
But both should be separate objects, not the target itself. Afaik, XSI won't complain about "this.kine.local.rotz + nullB.kine.local.rotz" , but once expression is active, you'll be unable to add keys.
The renderer "turtle" used by this scene, is not currently available. The "turtle" renderer will be used instead.

If you do the rig in ICE, it'll be a piece of cake to do this.
