How is a solid metal armature better than a wire armaure?

If you are talking about the difference between Aluminium wire or ball & socket the Ali has a bit of springiness to it (re-coil), Ball & Socket Armatures are more positive in each move

I need to buy one one day, see what it is like. Thanks again cavor.

probably because wire breaks if bent to much.

A ball and socket armature. I really want to buy one of these but there OVER 130$(pretty sure thats like 40- 50 lbs) There are some realy good tutorial on how to make them, but i don't have all of the materials to make one. A ball socket moves around freely so you can animate it in almost any direction.

I think a ball and socket armature because it allows the character to stand steady. So you can animate.

What is wrong with wire?


iantimothy Posted: Jun 8th 2012

nothing is wrong with wire, especially on a budget.

I used to never believe this but trust me it's true, a good wire armature is waaaay better than a bad ball and socket. if you experiment with it and get good, you can make really good work with wire armatures.

Look up Nick Hilligoss, he is an australian animator and he does a lot of good work with just wire armatures.
