Join Adam Crespi for an in-depth discussion in this video Custom attributes for overspin on the drive wheels, part of Vehicle Rigging in Maya.
In the car rig, once you've got the basic controls in for rolling, steering,…rocking, and leaning. You can start to think about additional…controls for things like over spin on the rear tires, and headlights.…For example, this is a fast rear wheel drive car.…And so, we might want to hold the break and tap the gas, making these rear tires,…spin out a little bit, without moving the car.…We may also want, in a slow motion shot, in a car ad, something like this, to see…this car go by and those wheels over-spinning and kicking up mud or dirt.…
I'll add in an extra attribute then. That gives me overspin control on the rear…wheels, and I'll put a seperate one in on the front.…This way I can do one or both if I need. As the front wheels aren't driven, I may…want to have them simply slide a little bit, but let the rear wheels really spin out.…I'll select my master controls, and in the channel box, choose edit.…Add attribute. I'm doing this in the channel box so that…this appears in the Control Master section, right under visibility.…
