Arm Rig

This week Sinéad was unable to work with the group due to issues outside of uni, so Rhea, Kristina and I worked together on the arm rig!

Our original plan for this was two have 2 arms essentially playing catch. The ball would drop down into shot, be caught by the first arm which then threw it to the second. The second arm would then try and throw it into a ‘goal’ like thing!

Rhea and I took a video of us throwing each other a ball to try and get an idea of how the arms would look when they’re moving (in the video though I was super aware of the fact it was being recorded and so my arm movements look really strange and unnatural…)

However when we had issues with parenting the ball and arms, so after consulting some second years (who though they were surprisingly helpful, also couldn’t sort it out) we decided to scrap that plan and make it a bit simpler. Rhea and I worked together animating the beginning of this piece and then Kristina did the end!
