Car Animation Tutorial.


car.jpgPhilippe (French version) has created a detailed tutorial on automating the animation of cars.

Philippe says:

After reading the theme of the next Release of Blenderart Magazine (car modeling), I remembered that I hadn't written a tutorial about the method that I found some months ago for automated car animation. So I have finally done it, and it is available here in PDF format, with a blend file provided.

The tutorial even includes tire compression on curves and automated steering wheel motion (including animating the characters hands with the motion!).

More from Philippe:

You 'll have only to concentrate your efforts on facial animation of your character and details, leaving the driving task to the system.

Apparently Philippe is planning on creating a system for motorcycles next. This tutorial is definitely worth a read. And he even includes a .blend file to see how its done.


  1. Now THIS is what i need

    I am looking for car animation tutorials and modeling

    You guys always have great timing =D

  2. Hi ! Thanks Everybody and Happy New Year!

    Do not search the French version of the tutorial, because I haven't written a French version.

    The French version link is currently pointing to this URL :

    Which is the English version of the home page.

    The French version of the homepage is the default homepage, and is here:

    I am French, but as I'm present almost only on English-speaking sites, my own website is not much visited by French Blenderheads. So I haven't translated all my tutorials in French. This means that most of the tutorials available on the French version of my site are written in English as well.

    I prefer spending time on writing new tutorials when I can instead of spending time on a French version which is less downloaded. I'm sorry for my French visitors...
