[quote="Yarfapet":1c5b8pqq]At one time I was thinking about how to make a 3D animated character, I quickly realized that having a limbless character (A Rayman styled one) would make 3d animation much easier, and you could simply use the model switch trick when you needed to say switch hand positions or something. Rojohound's new plugin pretty much solved the texture half of the issue. I was unfortunate to learn about halfway through designing a 3d camera system (And this a while ago) that constructs 3d object rotation's reliance on eular angles pretty much sinks the idea of being able to competently do even that kind of animation without a borderline inhuman amount of calculations.
This was going to be the star BTW: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10316081/protocat.PNG
Have you got a model of the object that i could download to see if i can create some basic animations with it ?
