I needed a new robot character with specific features for my latest Muvi. Has anyone got any tips or specifically tricks to making wheels animate etc?

Hello there Dylly

(Yes i know i haven't used that tent yet - but I will!)

How about using a small partially transparent video file (of a rotating wheel) as a texture on the wheel?

Alternatively if they were a separate prop you could rotate them separately - but that would mean the robot couldn't reaaly move I guess.

Reminded me of the solenoids!

Yeah, you could have an animated texture on the wheel, but you may also be able to have one on the face if you wanted to animate features of it.

Two avi clips I would imagine one on the tire and one on the side wheel hub.
