Making a camera shutter. It has five identical blades that swing to the center of the camera’s aperture. The shutters are driven by rotating an “actuator”, a slotted ring.
Looking for a labor saving technique.
Not a huge job to create a set of keyframes for each of the five shutters, but since they are identical parts, and swing through identical rotations, it seems there might be a short cut.
Example attached. One blade of the shutter has been animated. The other four are yet to be animated.
Thank you for your insights. Michael
