Wheel Rotation

Thanks for the plugin! One question, is there a way to animate the tire rotation to stop with the vehicle? When I set a key to bring the wheel rotation to zero, the wheels' rotation reverse instead of coming to a gradual stop.

The infamous syntax error

Dear friends, the syntax error comes from a character at the beginning of the script. Max 2014 and beyond can ignore it in favor of their extended Unicode support. what you will do is this:

1) Open mcr file in MS Word and select MS-DOS coding when asked.
2) Delete the first character of file (non-Unicode character that causes error)
3) Save your file as plain text.

That's it.

Body Roll

Hi Walid; first i must say its an excellent simple and effective script, i enjoy using it and it makes rigging my vehicles quick and effectively easy. i was wondering about a feature i wasn't sure if you were going to implement into the rigger and that is one for Body Roll. since the body does lean or roll when going into a hard turn or accelerating and decelerating, maybe this is something that can be added as a slider so that we can roll the body on the X and Y Axis.

thank you :)

Vehicle Animation

Vehicle rigger is used to prepare animated parts of vehicle and after that we came to know many new features of the newly developed vehicle parts in real. It helps in animating the real parts that will require in future after that these real parts will be placed in Cars like BMW or Mercedes and we got a good and smooth test drive. This technique we will be needing in future for proper service and solution of the problem we face in our cars.
