This is the first of a 4 part video tutorial series geared to teach you how to rig a tank in Maya to a professional level. Please keep in mind that this rig is not easy to achieve so be sure to know the rigging basics before watching. In this video, “How to rig a tank in Maya – part 1”, I will be creating a clean joint based tread system where each tread piece moves in sync with one another along a given curve path. The next video will setup the wheels and treads so that they move correctly in any direction and distance.

Thank you so much for your time and simple but strong explanations! Your expression is very precise and I cannot tell how it will help me on every prop I'll need to rig.
