Making characters fly

Post by Theotherguy » Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:45 pm

Hi all, I am trying to get my characters to fly through the air on rocket-bikes. I am able to get the characters to interact wit the bikes using the - biker - character actions, an Im able to make the bikes float in the air but the characters wont go with them and they cant be made to float. I figured out a work-around using chromakey in my video editor, but it looks phony as there are no shadows. Any ideas would be appreciated

You can capture the shadow if you use layers. I demonstrated this here :

Isolate the biker and shadow using the layers and then you can just move them around in your video editor.

Thanks. I've figured out another way too, you might even have shown me this. I made a ground plane, made it float in the air, set up my characters and bikes on it, then made it invisible. I then just set up my light to cast the shadows where I want.
