How about posting a screen grab of what your model looks like. Our R10 rigging tutorial may help. Often with robots you can just attach the various parts to the joints / bones without having to bother about skinning and weighting.

Hi. This looks quite straight forward provided you know how to go about it. Would you casre to zip up the model and upload it? I'm sure someone could rearrange things for you so it could be animated.

Me - I'd be tempted to add a few XPresso user data sliders to it to make animating easier. Much easier working with a slider than rotating objects buried within the hierarchy.

not sure if u noticed but.. i kind of assume a aline to spline would work, but the % wouldnt let me make a cycle but instead.. i would stop at certain point.. how do u fix that? i would appreciate i f u explain what u did in more detail...thanks again...

something else... when we post the files, how can we protect our models from getting "stolen" by other people and getting credit for them? just a question.

Hey guys.. Kiwi and Rock Star, here is some progress on the toy.. not done yet....Thank you for your help. I have a question, how can i change the background color in the renders? beside creating a white Sky. Im composing this into AE with an alpha.. but still, dont really like the black.. . Also, when i include a floor in my scene, it gives me a line..like an edge..how can i get rid of this? Can i fix it with a compositing tag?

thanks

Ps any suggestions?
