Setting up the rig with constraints.

In this tutorial, we construct a simple example of a balancing rig using some simple constraints. The rig allows a character to balance on a board on top of an object.
The video covers setting up basic legs using Joints.
A very basic "see-saw" is created.
An Aim Constraint is used to help control the direction of the balance board.
A Vibrate tag is then used to add some fast and easy secondary motion.
