In this video Pablo will talk about some of the animation principles seeing in the Bouncing Basics and adding Drag and Follow through, in this case he will apply them to a pendulum rig.

This is not the best tutorial, but its fine.

this was a great explainer video but can you make one where you do a step by step tutorial

@Justice magagane at the moment we are busy with the production of the sprites project, maybe in the future

SOLVED: Changed Transform Pivot Point to Individual Origins instead of Bounding Box Centre. (Located at the top of the screen)
Hi guys, i'm having a problem with the rig in that i can't use it to rotate all three points of the pendulum as per the video at 04:34.
If I select all of the FK parts of the pendulum and rotate, they all rotate together and remain straight, instead of individually as per 04:34.

*@myanimationadventure* Hi!!! that is because you have to set up your transform pivot point to individual origins and at the moment you have it at 3d cursor

*@pablofurni* I'm late!!! sorry i didnt read you solved it already

*@pablofurni* No worries, thanks for the response anyway! :D

When you created the first swing animation, where every link is using the exact same keyframe setup - did you create the keyframes for the first link, then copy/paste for the others, to duplicate - or somehow make them all reference the same keyframes?

@Stephen Brown hi! I create the pose by selecting all the links and rotate it them from individual origins, otherwise you just can rotate them individually

PROBLEM rig pivot while rotating

*@cbsemaths029* Hi!! could you define a bit more the problem, like this we can try to solve it? thanks

Hello. New to blender. I thought that animations like these are done using physics simulations. Am I wrong? If no, why you choose to do it manually? thanks.

*@Aleksey Novykov* hi!! welcome!!! depends on the production and what you are animating, if it is a prop or hair you can do it with simulation, but if it is part of the character maybe you need to animated by hand....
Anyway this is a learning exercise to learn how drag and follow works, and that principle you can apply to other things like a leg or an arm (that is kinda like a swing)
Hope this was helpful

Nice tutorial showing the thought process. If one practices with the rig and do your own version, then you learn much faster!
