    animating a trailer

    I've got a scene where a forklift is pulling a trailer, it has to stop, back up, make a Y turn and pull off again. Just animating the forklift itself, with its turning back tires is a pain.

    But getting the trailer to move correctly is proving really difficult just trying to do it by hand. I have the forklift as the "Target" of the trailer which helps a lot. But is there more I can do with the trailer to let the computer make it work correctly as I move the forklift? Not sure if IK would work forward and backward.

    I'm looking for the same kind of help except that i would settle for a simple tractor-trailer rig.
