Finally I’m ready with my new tutorial. This time I’ve prepared two versions: A version for professional users and a long and detailed version, that describes all steps.
In this tutorial I show you a rig setup to control a car. No custom rigging Addons are needed, just Blender. After this tutorial you’ll be able to let drive a vehicle on a custom defined path. You define the driving direction and speed. And the car just follows.
The wheels will rotate using the right revolution, even backwards if necessary. And the car driver behaves also realistic and moves the steering wheel according to the wheels current direction.
All this happens completely automatically, without setting dozens of keyframes! The whole animation is controlled just by one value!
