Animatech Secret Recipe:
This lowrider rig optimizes the control object count while still allowing for the versatility of a 16 switch hydraulics setup. The combination of parenting, constraints and expressions make the 3D model mimic the mechanics of a real car. Also featured is a scissor lift which uses a bit of trigonometry to drive the animation.
