hai arjun,

Thanks for the quick response..the method u suggest is same as parenting it to the shoulder joint.... this works fine in very minimal cases...
check this thread...The armours in this char are very close to the mesh and how do u get free movement of the shoulder.?

It has to be worked out in the design stage how it rotate and moves in transition with the arm.Once that is worked out alright u can use some basic expressions to control that.
i can work out that expression for u if u want......that is very simple
