In this tutorial we create an expressions based rig to control watch hands. The movement of the seconds hand is modified to naturally transition from one second to the next one in organic steps. Furthermore, we make the minutes and hours hands follow the movement of the seconds hand automatically.
For this tutorial we use the After Effects tool iExpressions. It allows to create expressions without the need to write program code. More infos:
Special thanks to Hans-Juergen Steidte for designing the watch used for this tutorial.
