Tracked Vehicle's
« on: January 18, 2008, 11:52:51 pm »

Hello! I'm quite an amateur animator, but i know my way well enough aorund the program to do most things iw ould want to do with it.... one thing that has for the longest time, evaded me, has been how to animate, and control a tank track, like those on the main battle tanks of todays militaries?

I realize there was a post aoubt this on the old forum, and i downloaded and view the included file. After studing it at length, it still doens't make tha tmuch sense to me.

I am basically requesting, that someone give me a quick (or legnthy, the more information teh better) how to guide to make my tank battlions rumble and roll across my screen.

from the file is een, it seemed that the tracks were on a path, and jumped back when their path was completed.... how owuld i go about attaching this motion to a chassis? make those paths/etc the children of the chassis?

please, assist me all you can... i will greatly appreciate it and hopefully entertain you with my creations at a later time...
