To force myself to finish my tentacle experiment I am going to post what I have achieved so far. I have to give credit where credit is due though. I didn’t really do much of the hard work Grant Skinner, Keith Peters and Jelger Muylaert are to thank for that. I still want to add joint limits and elastics. Source code to come.

If you are seeing this you need to enable javascript.

    Thanks it is good to be back. Now of course I go and move which is putting a cramp in finishing stuff and starting new projects.

    Can you please list the articles that you learned from to achieve this?

    I have been trying to get inverse kinematics working for a while now but with poor knowledge of complex mathematics I got poor results.

    If you want to do IK based stuff I highly recommend the Actionscript animation 3.0 books by Keith Peters
