Now anytime you hear the word rig in relationship to an animation inside of 3D applications like CINEMA 4D or any other application, it really relates to a set of controls that are used to make your object do something specific. Now those controls could be very complicated or they can be very simple. Now in the case of our shark their controls are very simple. What we need to do is to create a relationship between the movement of the jaw geometry for the actual shark body and the rotation of the gums.

The Morph tag allows us to create a state of geometry that reacts to a slider. I'm going to of a switch my Morph tag over to Edit mode and cli...
