Topic: Support rigs for "flying"
Hello all, I've been wondering what the best way to make a character fly -- and I'm talking about doing flips midair, spirals, picking things up and slicing through the air, etc...I'd like it to be very action packed and energetic, and I'm having a hard time coming up with a rig that can be that flexible to allow that kind of movement. Green screen as masking is an obvious answer, but does anyone have any ideas as far as the support/flying rigs go? I tried stacking normal LEGO bricks but it doesnt allow for the flexible movement of characters in midair. I'd like to build something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTpkfZuOFLM but I dont have those special types of pieces, and don't want to go out of my way to get them. I'm thinking of using special wires, and tried paper clips, but they are too stiff to allow smooth movement. Any ideas for other types of wiring/armatures/rigs?
