I just learned how to do Set Driven Key and so I started playing around with it. Well for no reason at all, I created a sphere and before I knew it, I ended up with a robot. Anyway, not sure how far I'm going to go with it, but here's the start.

thanks Chirone! I've already added some more cool treats, one that will surely get a great laugh. I plan on doing an animation with it when done...I already have a story idea in mind.

Default Added Helicoptor mode

alexanderH: I saw your comment on you tube. Thanks, I appreciate that.

jali: It's really easy to do. As soon as I get a microphone, I'll post a tutorial for you (either later tonight or tomorrow).

Here's an update

Jr. Who & jali: Yeah, Set Driven Key is really powerful and yet so simple to do. You're probably like me...learn better by seeing than reading. I found a microphone so tomorrow I will do a tutorial and post it on You Tube. I'll put the link in this thread.

I did the tutorial but I'm still waiting for it to finish processing on youtube. I would have posted earlier but had some company come over for awhile to use my computer.
