Car Rig Script

Here is my first car rigging approach, which became more complicated than it was at the beginning when I decided to research this topic. I’ve studied a lot of car rigging tutorials, took all the best features and built my own rig scheme. It became a great new experience for me in developing scripted rig.

The main features:

  • one click rig creation
  • dialog for automatic alignment of rig to the car and wheels (brakes optional)
  • controls for body and wheels dynamics
  • automatic secondary motion
  • path following with proper wheel rotation, steering and body roll
  • terrain following, the list of terrain objects
  • vehicle speed speedometer in Kilometers per Hour
  • automatic rotation of car depended on its travel direction (in case of manual animation without path spline)

At this moment I’m working on a short animation with parallel testing of the rig, adding some new features, fixing bugs.
