For this post I just shortly wanted to talk about the rig I made for Rocket Raccoon's Gun the "Glow Gun".
With this set-up it was fairly simple. Most of the controls are locked down to either rotate in one direction or translate but despite the lack of controls you are able to get nice animation with so many moving parts.
This trickiest part of this rig is Dynamically parenting the controls so that the main controls could reorient everything underneath it.
This project took less than an hour and I'm happy with the result!
