Griffon Vulture - rigged - animated 3D model

Description

Griffon Vulture

Rigged and Animated for:
LightWave 8.5 and up
3ds Max 8 and up
MAX 2017 generated FBX
MAX 2009 generated FBX
Lightwave 2015 generated FBX
OBJ - includes base object and all morph target objs

Both models come with several pre-animated scenes to get you started.

The feathers are geometry so they render fast and no plugins are needed.

The wings are animated using the 3 bones within each. The wings are folded using one of several morph targets.

You can also make adjustments, like spreading the wing tip feathers and spreading the tail using morph targets.

-------------------------

The main controlling object is the ROOT bone

I have provided several scene files to get you started:
Zero
Land-Take off
Fly loop

The feet and legs are controlled by LT-Foot and RT-Foot respectively. (Lightwave)
The feet and legs are controlled by LT-FootControl and RT-FootControl respectively. (Max)

There are 3 'neck' bones, a 'head' bone and a 'lower beak' bone.

There are 30 Morph targets. (Lightwave)
There are 30 Morph targets. (Max)

The 'Mouth' phonemes are controlled by 8 Morph targets:
located when you select the CROW mesh and go to Object => Properties => Deform (Lightwave)
located when you select the CROW mesh and go to Modify => Morpher (Max)

But the mouth can be opened and closed with a bone as well.

The wings are controlled by 3 bones each
and have 3 Morph position, to spread the wing tips and 10 morph positions to manipulate the wing

WingFold-A5

WingTIpsDN
WingTIpsSpread-01
WingTIpsSpread-02
WingTIpsSpread-03
The Tail spread is controlled via Morph target TailSpread, the Tail bone controls position and rotation.

The toes are controlled by 12 bones on each foot.

To fold the wings use the morphs noted above.

But if you have positioned the wings by moving the bones, AND you try to use morph targets to fold them, you WILL have some pretty weird distortions that will freak you out.

Don't panic, the solution is to 'zero' out your wing bone positions, as or just before you apply the 'Morph' targets.

-------------

The model is made hi resolution by using Sub-Patching, so the actual geometry is much less than the rendered geometry.
