How to animate a puppet
I'd like to make a simple marionette like puppet for an animation.
Any recommendations on how to do this in C8.1 Pro or the 8.5 beta?
I'm envisioning a very low poly vertex model for the torso, and was thinking about connecting limbs by a soft body cylinder / string so limbs can bounce like a wooden puppet.
Would it make sense to apply physics to the limbs and move the torso to generate jiggly movements?
Is there a simpler way that might give similar effect?
I also have After Effects available so I could simply do this in 2D - but think it would look cooler if I could get it to work in Carrara.
