Flat Surface Magnets?
I was wondering if it was possible at all to use a magnet to fake the squishing collision of soft body parts against hard surfaces?
My scene has a hard chair prop and I want to have it so the character's thighs and glutes squish against the surface without having to make soft body simulations or using the morph brush for every single sitting pose.
At first I tried parenting the magnet effect zone to the chair prop and parenting the magnet to the figure's hip and affecting the thighs.
But it failed because the chair's surface is square, and the effect zone is spherical.
I know a magnet can be used for the opposite effect, a soft surface being pushed under a figure's body.
Is it possible to use magnets this way at all?
Best regards, Tony
Thanks for the reply!
I see it is possible now, though I followed the instruction, the opposite result happened and the body parts shrunk where they should spread... should the box or the magnet be rotated for a chair?
Look for the Eureka script, it's designed for deforming downwards like on a chair.
Yes, for a chair, you need to turn the magnet 90°. (and play with the settings)
Or use the Eureka script as shown by Raven.
Thank you for your answers, I've played around with the magnet settings and they have many interesting effects.
