[Orbit: 3D Game Design] IK Animation (April 5th, 7:00 PM)

First time attending this event? Please sign-up in our short form over here:goo.gl/JwpJzx

Looking to step up your game development skills by diving into 3D? This mentorship group is for you! The 3D Game Design Orbit mentorship group can help provide you answers and resources to any questions you may have on a variety of popular 3D game engines, including Unity 3D.

This session, Taro Omiya will provide a tutorial on how to utilize Unity’s Inverse Kinematic (IK) animations. This technique is useful for using scripting to make a humanoid character’s limbs twist, turn, and move to a target point in a natural way.

The 3D Game Design Orbit group will meet on the 1st and 4th Thursday of the month at Tech Valley Game Space and will provide opportunities for participants to share information, discuss projects, ask questions and obtain guidance from experienced mentors.
