Need to animate a complex model of a chain driven piece of machinery that has components moving in opposite directions. Looking for a good tutorial or someone who can give me an estimate on what they would charge to do a 15 second animation of one complete revolution showing counter moving parts and deformation of product as it moves through the conveyor. I have a model and scene set up and tried animating along a spline path with no luck. Anyone willing to tackle this... contact me at [email protected] Here is a link to a render of the equipment in question. http://www.bigblackbag.net/websites/original_media_viewer.asp?WebsiteID=235&GalleryID=76978&MediaID=948851

Looks very similar to tank treads. Is Relativity still useful?
