Long forgotten love.

I like how some project reminds me some skills that I haven't used for a long time.  I was reminded today how modeling can be fun at times.  So when I got home, I dug out some old model I did before, but never got a chance to finish it (zBrush is so frustrating to me!). Still very proud of it!  I just need to learn Mudbox or Zbrush to give the sneaker more detail. (How many things are on my learning list!!)  Yeah.. one day I will. lol  (burying it back...)

My lovely adidas sneaker!  Just the right one.  The left one have a different pattern on it.

AFR stretch and squash controller icon

Rigging a bouncing ball's squash and stretch control right now from AFR.

This reminds me of a command "parent -s -r".  It does the same thing as our usually parent command.  Its just that in MAYA in order to reparent shape node under another transform node, we need to "type" in command.  The usually drag and drop in outliner or hitting p won't work.

So the same thing, choose the child(ore children) then the parent (remember to freeze scale first...), then run the command "parent -s -r".  This way we don't need to parent the curves under the disc ctrl, then make them reference. Save some time!
