Gear system

I know this might look like an enormous waste of time, but I reckon it'll help when it comes to rigging the pistons; they are on screen for at least 2 or 3 seconds after all.


  1. Do you need to rig a set of these bad boys in 3d? That could be quite fun!

  2. Yep, only got a rudimentary understanding of how to do it though.

  3. Kick ass! John, you should talk to Forest, he has a really similar thing on his truck and it's getting there.

  4. Or ask mr Boyd there. Paul! :P Also, John 'Procrastinate' Harkins...? JP Harkins has a nice ring to it, actually.

  5. I completely forgot I posted here, totally meant to come back and offer my services/advice if you get lost with it.
    Have you got anywhere with it yet?
