In this exercise I would like you to recreate the Crane Arm Rig shown in the video lesson.

You will practice using the IK constraint and the action constraint.

Please upload a video (screen recording or viewport render animation) of your rig in action.

You rig should...

  • function correctly
  • show the IK constraint in action
  • show the action constraint in action
  • have custom shapes and colour groups
  • the CTRL bone should also have the display overridden so it always shows at the end of the arm.
  • Bonus for also getting the UI to function correctly.
