Animating The Building Of A Car
In this tutorial we'll explain how to do an interesting effect creating a car.
We're going to animate a car assembling itself in two different ways;1. Building a car, polygon by polygon. 2. This effect will make it look like the car was assembled by picking up mirrors on the floor.
Building A Car - Poygon By Polygon
For this tutorial we'll take advantage of the
capability to animate attributes. The attributes are going to be
animating merge vertix attributes. We're going to merge all the
vertices and then un-merge them. It's important through this tutorial
not to delete history.
Step nine - In the attributes editor, right click on the value and click set key. Make sure this is on frame 1.
Step eleven - Now set the distance attribute to 0. Right click on the value and set a key. Play the animation. As it plays it'll assemble the car.
