In this Maya tutorial we will learn how to rig tank treads. We'll get started by setting up our initial tread, learning how to prevent flipping issues, how to have the tread move properly as we move our vehicle, making sure it flows in the right direction and cycles along its path. We'll then learn how a script can be built to evenly position treads along our path to save you a lot of time. Along the way, we'll cover topics like how to set up wheel rotations to move with the treads, how to conform the treads to follow an uneven terrain, and how to make the rig scalable. By the end of this training, you will be equipped with the skill set needed to rig your own robust tread systems. Software required: Autodesk Maya 2014.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] flowing Delano with digital tutors and Autodesk authorized training provider No, like to welcome you to this course, where you'll learn how to retain trades using Maya A. Tank treads are complex, which could make him very challenging to rig. The goal of this course is to break down these conflicts procedures into manageable steps that you can build tank tread systems of your own. We'll get started by setting up our initial tread, learning how to prevent flipping issues. Howto have the treadmill properly as we move our vehicle making so it flows in the right direction and cycles along its path. Well, then learn how a script can be built to evenly position Are treads along her path to save us a lot of time. Along the way, we'll cover topics like how to set of real rotations to move with our treads and how to conform. Treads to an uneven terrain will also learn how to make our rig scalable by the end of this course, will be equipped with the skill set needed to read your own robust tread systems. So let's say we begin
