View Full Version : AGAIN.. Tank Tread animation

07-09-2007, 11:42 AM

I just finished from the relativity tutorial about making an animated tank tread, I did all the steps right from the beginning! , but it didn't worked..

Guys.... it's only 2 or 3 steps in MAX to make a simple animated tank tread, why all that complexity in LW..

still there is no fast and good way to do it?

There are simpler ways to do it that require only a few steps. You also have to make sure that you have relativity enabled when using that method. :)

hey larry :) :)

maybe you mean doing it with motion modifiers like follower and curve constraint.

but sometimes it gives me weird movements.

realativity is activated
when I write the script in variables it does not work, and without it works for 30 frams only

DStorms Trailer plugin is also quite useful :)

mmmm...does Trailer works with the track or I must attach it to one link chain only and then duplicate it several times?

and thanks for helping ^_^
