LINKING BOTH HANDS TO A PROP WITH MOTION CAPTURE...
Very useful tutorial. Been trying to solve this problem for years. Finally got it.
This tutorial shows you how to link one hand to a prop that has been parented to another hand. An essential technique for motion capture sequences where the imported motion capture is driving the IK
of both arms and hands. This is applicable to sequences which require both hands holding an object such as a gun,axe, sword, staff, etc. To achieve a realistic animation, both hands need to grip the
object and not move or slide, an effect that is pretty much impossible without using this technique.
This tutorial includes a sample motion file in Poser .pz2 pose format,of a man walking with a rifle and 2 animation clips showing Michael 3 with a rifle parented to the right hand, before and after the
technique is appled.
