Animating A Fish Along A Path

Maya: Rigging


To snap joints to a path like a fish or an eel swimming along a curve we use…
1. Spline IK (Skeleton > Spline IK)
2. Motion Path (Animate > Attach to Motion Path)
3. Flow Path Object (Animatie > Flow Path Object)
There’s a few things to know about setting this up, and the following tutorial explains the details.
