Creating Dangling Objects: Need Help!

I've been looking for tutorials on how to create a dangling object in Blender. I have only found the one about creating a long chain with a pendent at the end. That is not the effect I want. I want to create an earring with a tear-drop jewel that rocks back and forth as the character moves about. Ho...

IK_Spline Usage in Blender 2.67

Not sure if I post this in the right place, here, but: I'm wondering if any improvements have been made with the IK Spine tool in Blender 2.67? When I tried to use the tool back in, Blender 2.5x versions, to create a more flexible rig in an armature (such as a tail or long neck for dinosaurs, giraff...

Cycles good for still-life style renderings

I've been messing around with Cycles. It's a really nice rendering engine, if you want to do still-life type of art renderings. It renders glass objects very well and has more photo-realistic touch. But for animations,especially character animations, it's not all that great. One of the major draw-ba...

Problem with Blender 2.58 vertexes

I have been working with Blender for a long time, so I'm not new to the program. I do have a big problem with Blender 2.58 and I feel like it's a bug. When I right-click to select a vertex on any object, Blender will randomly select a vertex at a different location. It does it, as well, when trying ...

A Problem I have with Blender 2.57b

Despite a lot of great things about Blender 2.57 series, I am not very happy about one. That is the UV Image Map function. Unlike Blender 2.49b, where you could pan all around the Image Map, all you can do in 2.57 is zoom in and out and that is it. The panning about helped me to manipulate and arran...

Rigging and Animating bipeds

One of the hardest things to find on-line is how to construct, setup and pose CG animal skeletal rigging. There is absolutely nothing for Blender. Only for the usual simple biped, Ludwig or Candy Man rigs. I've been bashing my brains in trying to modify the Ludwig model from Tony Mullen's book "Intr...

Blender 2.5 Alpha 0 likes and probs

The first off, I like the new interface for Blender 2.5. More intuitive and organized. And it runs faster than Blender 2.49_a does even with my old P4 3gigs computer with 3 megs of DDR2 ram and GForce 7900 card. The modleling is easier and smoother, both if you desire to do cube modeling or by loops...

Some Probs with Blender 2.5 alpha0

I have been messing around with the test version of Blender 2.5. I noticed that you cannot inset a background image to the view ports. I've done everything I could so that I could put in a reference image to the viewports where it has a "Background Image" to the View Properties tools, even if I put ...
