How to rig a chain

by hazmondo posted 113 days ago

Hey,

I'm wondering if anyone has any knowledge of creating a complex chain rig similar to the one in Kung Fu Panda 3 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aq5NcuEOwjw)? They obviously used a mixture of animation and simulation.

At the moment I'm using an FK to drive a ribbon which has sub controls for offsets but I'm not sure it's enough.
