How to Create a Piston Rig With Two Target Tags in Cinema 4D

Athanasios “Noseman” Pozantzis shows how to make a piston and wheel animation with two target tags in C4D.

Mechanical linkages require a bit of forethought and a rig, even if it’s temporary. Here, Athanasios “Noseman” Pozantzis (@nosemangr) shows how to create a wheel and piston setup in Cinema 4D using only two Target Tags so that rotating the wheel will drive the piston automatically.
