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.

-------------

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

Golden Eagle

Rigged and Animated for:
LightWave 8.5 and up
3ds Max 8 and up

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

The feathers are geometry so they render fast and no plugins are needed.

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:
Zero
Land-Take off
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 3 'neck' bones, a 'head' bone and a 'lower beak' bone.

There are 23 Morph targets. (Lightwave)
There are 23 Morph targets. (Max)

The 'Mouth' phonemes are controlled by 8 Morph targets:
located when you select the mesh and go to 'Object' => 'Properties' => 'Deform' (Lightwave)
located when you select the 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 3 Morph position, to spread the wing tips and 10 morph positions to manipulate the wing

WingFold-03
WingFold-04-Folded
WingFold-05
WingFold-06
WingFold-07
WingTIpsDown
WingTIpsSpread-01
WingTIpsSpread-02

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

The toes are controlled by 12 bones on each foot.

To fold the wings use the morphs noted above.
