Introduction to the Wire-Splitting Rig

This tutorial explores a different approach to handling motion graphics rigging; opting for parametric control of aspects of a rig and allowing a wide range of flexibility. The initial concept is inspired by Paul Clements' Headphones. Although this specific element has been covered in other tutorials online, the focus in this tutorial is not simply how to recreate the effect, but instead how to build a robust rig that allows for easy changes and animation.

All project files for this tutorial are in Part 7.
