This discussion introduces a new series about inverse kinematics for videogames. Before starting our journey, this post will show a few games that use procedural animations, and how they differ from traditional assets-based animations.
You can find all the other parts here:
- Part 1. An Introduction to Procedural Animations
- Part 2. The Mathematics of Forward Kinematics
- Part 3. Implementing Forward Kinematics
- Part 4. An Introduction to Gradient Descent
- Part 5. Inverse Kinematics for Robotic Arms
- Part 6. Inverse Kinematics for Tentacles
- Part 7. Inverse Kinematics for Spider Legs
At the end of this post you can find a link to download all the assets and scenes necessary to replicate this tutorial.
