Firstly, acknowledgements goes to Mr. Deepak for creating the Geneva Mechanism sample attached here.
I have also done a similar Geneva mechanism a few months back. Now the problem is animating it without the human (us) actually using a mouse to manually drag and do a screen capture, i.e. via physical dynamics then record the movements. The video file in the attachment was done this way.
I wish to bring up this problem again, because we still couldn't find a solution to animate it automatically, other than the physical dynamics and manual drag method. Using Basic Motion with 3D contact comes to mind. However, after trying to add a 3D contact to the Geneva mechanism and the driving cam, it does not work properly.
We are using version 2009.
Can anyone help to solve the problem? Or it is unsolvable?
