Bend the wing to sim­u­late flight

ImagineFX - - In Depth Flying Vehicle -

I want to make the wings flap, but even a steady wing beat is a com­plex mo­tion. I don’t want to spend the time em­u­lat­ing it in 3D for this sim­ple model, so I’m just go­ing to bend the flat plane like a piece of card us­ing a Bend Mod­i­fier. By chang­ing the strength of the mod­i­fier the wing crudely flaps up and down. It’s nor­mal to have to fid­dle with the set­tings to get the Mod­i­fier’s di­rec­tion and strength right. July 2016
