How to rig bike chain?
on Sep 25, 2012 at 8:10:28 am

Header says all. That's the problem. I have no idea how to rig bike (or some other) chains. It should work like when I rotate wheels, the chain will move. The basic rig is enough. Bigger wheen on other end of the chain and smaller on the other.

Something like this. http://www.arthursclipart.org/science/science/bike%20chain.gif

If it's not moving, animate it

practice with deformers first.
or try path deformer.
the trick is not to deform the links.
Its been done many times, Ive never had to but now wish I kept the links to the tutorials.
