Hi guys,
I've started making a scene from the Doctor Who episode 'Dalek' and have come across a problem. Does anyone know a way that I could get the effect of chains across this Dalek like in the image below that would work from a few different camera angles?




Thanks,

Ah! Trickery, my department...

Depends on the angles of course! One way would be to use Lamb's ob_windowpane1.ase from her windows-with_transparency file and replace it with transparent chains, lay the panel at 45 degrees (the low collision should allow it) over the object. I didn't have a Dalek handy, there's never one around when you want one! So I used a cylinder instead.

I did a very quick mock up. As you can see from a 180 degree pan, there are a number of angles you can shoot from. Using four single chains and adjusting the horizontal angles for each should work better I would think, imagine picture 5 which is unworkable, with the angles twisted!
