I have been using Blender for 2 months, so I am beginner. (I am using Blender 2.63a)
I would like to make animation with a lot of gear wheels so I need to use Coinstraints. Copy Rotation mode seems to be very simple and usefull but I have got problem.
If I set `Influence` on 1.000 everything is ok, but if I dicrease this parameter my wheels don`t go properly... I made short animation for you. In this example I applied all scales, all rotations. Wheel with Influence 1.000 work properly, but wheels with Influence 0.5 and 0.2 have problem (about 5 sec of movie).
Could you help me , please?
I am not really sure but maybe you can try something like this
you have cogs A B C D
A copy rotation to B 1.0
B copy rotation to C 0.5
C copy rotation to D 0.5
Maybe it will work like that
Check also if you have any limit rotation applied.
If yes remove it.
Its a little late but maybe this is the answer to your problem.
