HI, I want to be able to move each pincer individually for each side and one controller to move both side. could anyone explain me how to do it efficiently ? I use 3ds max.

Thank You In advance.

Just parent both the controllers under the master controller. Are you using IK handles for moving them or FK?

For the main dummy you can create a Reaction so that when you move it linearly up and down (as seen in image) the two pincers rotate appropriately to open and close.
