Flash Inverse Kinematics
Inverse kinematics is the process of determining the parameters of a jointed flexible object in order to achieve a desired pose. The topic is old as man it self, but I just recently had opportunity to play with it in Flash. The whole idea is relatively simple, but adding realistic tone to it is a pain.
If you are not into ActionScript, and you need quick method of creating inverse kinematics based animations with flash at author time (in timeline) checkout extension iK’motion toolset.
Check out some crazy, more advanced examples: Falling girl (evergreen), Comcastic.
