How do I make a character who is standing hit an object on the ground with a hammer? I went for an idle singing pose to give the impression of holding the hammer. The object I want to hit is a 2 inch thick square plate.
Cheers
Maerus.

Your going to need to find an animation in the pile for your character to look like he is hitting the ground and then your going to need to animate the hammer moving seperately to match the movement of the character. This is not ideal but for now this is how you need to animate a held prop in muvizu (thinks of recent threads ^^) until they come up with a better solution.

Thanks Urbanlamb. Have searched through the lists but didn't quite find what I'm looking for. Might just try a different approach.

or you may try a camera shot of character holding hammer, cut to camera shot of object character is wanting to hit. then back to character the fade to black with a whacking noise then shot of character with hammer head on top of object. to give apperance of character hitting the object. Just a thought.
