##### Rubik's cube
« on: February 07, 2008, 08:17:02 pm »

I saw an animation on youtube about animating a rubik's cube solving itself using Anim8or. Does anyone have any idea about how to do it? A little tutorial sort of thing will be highly appreciated.

For your information, this is so far I have done regarding the rubik's cube. I am not sure whether I am doing it right or not... Please do comment. I have made 26 individual cubes (except for the middle most cube, to save some poly,,,) at their respective position and with their pivots at about centre (0,0,0). I had to manually drag them to the centre, is there any better way??

Next I added all the cubes into the scene mode. Now comes the problem. at frame 24 I rotated the top section 90 degree. then at frame 48 rotated the right section 90 degree. If I hit the play button now all the cubes (both top and right section) I animated started to move together. DID I MISS SOMETHING?? I spent the whole night with this....

I think a video would be helpful to show your problem... I guess you need to add more keyframes to certain positions, but it's difficult to help because I don't really know what's the problem...

By the way here is a link to anim8or.org forum where the original cube author posted the video and answered a few questions... http://anim8or.org/index.php/topic,206.0.html

Kubajzz..... thnx  a lot buddy.... I finally solved the problem... your mention about keyframes helped... The problem was i had all the keyframes already in the right place.. but the type should be 'corner' .. it was 'smooth' by default... .. thnxx... hope to share my final version very soon....
