I''m trying to make a simple battleship with 3 gun turrets. I have most of the model. It looks already quite nice but I still need to animate it. There are basically to types of turrets: 1. a gun turret - the turret spins and the gun moves up-down, left-right, and a machine gun turret,which has a limited spin and the machine guns move up-down only. How can I make this up and down rotation (for example in 3D studio). The machine gun looks something like ------o- where "o" is the place fixed to the side of the turret. Any idea how can I make the pivot point in the center of this wheel? Can I add multiple animation sets to a model? And this is more of a programming question: I''m going to export this model to .X file. Is it better to programatically make the animations of the models or to export a keyframed animation? Thank you very much in advance!
