Time to suspend myself from the ceiling and pretend like I’m swimming.
It would be cool if we had further tools that let you attach markers to your body and map them to a custom rig. E.g. if I have something like a gorilla or other animal with long arms and short legs, I could use a pair of walking sticks in my hands to simulate having longer arms, or even have another joint in my arms or an accentuated “hand” by holding a long object (e.g. praying mantis).
No idea if that makes sense or is feasible, but it would make my job much easier if I could use tech like this to try and emulate the animations for alien creatures or animals, even if just for specific body parts that I could then combine keyframes for into one animation. Would need further tech to adjust orientation across all keyframes for specific parts or bones when combining limb animations, but it would be really powerful.
