All Quad Geometry

All models come with several pre-animated scenes to get you started.

The wings are animated using the 3 bones within each. The wings are folded using one of several morph targets.

You can also make adjustments, like spreading the wing tip feathers and spreading the tail using morph targets.


The main controlling object is the 'ROOT' bone

I have provided several scene files to get you started:
Take-Off and Land
Fly loop

The feet and legs are controlled by 'LT-Foot' and 'RT-Foot' respectively. (Lightwave)
The feet and legs are controlled by 'LT-FootControl' and 'RT-FootControl' respectively. (Max)

There are 2 'neck' bones, a 'head' bone and a 'lower beak' bone.

There are 23 Morph targets.

The 'Mouth' phonemes are controlled by 9 Morph targets:
located when you select the Cardinal mesh and go to 'Object' => 'Properties' => 'Deform' (Lightwave)
located when you select the Cardinal mesh and go to 'Modify' => 'Morpher' (Max)

But the mouth can be opened and closed with a bone as well.

The wings are controlled by 3 bones each
and have 1 Morph position, to spread the wing tips and 5 morph positions to fold the wing

The Tail spread is controlled via Morph target 'TailOpened', the Tail bone controls position and rotation.

The toes are controlled by 12 bones on each foot.

To fold the wings use WingFold_06 or WingFold_09.

But if you have positioned the wings by moving the bones, AND you try to use morph targets to fold them, you WILL have some pretty weird distortions that will freak you out.

Don't panic, the solution is to 'zero' out your wing bone positions, as or just before you apply the 'Morph' targets.

Morphs: AI, CDGJKNSTYZ, E, F, LT, MBP, O, U, WQ, Body-Flight, Budy-Puffed 1a, Body Puffed 2a, Crest1, Crest2, Crest3, EyelidsOpened, TailClosed, TailOpened, WingFold_06, WingFold_09, WingTipsDN, WingTIpSpread_01, WingTipSpread_02


The model is made hi resolution by using Sub-Patching, so the actual geometry is much less than the rendered geometry.
