Remember when you first wanted to roll a wheel in C4d? Did you do it by hand? Did you look for answers in the manual? Did you try some Xpresso? Did you search a forum?
I did all of the above and found a few links that might be helpful to those interested in rolling things.
In no particular order:
-A good tute with a scene file as well by 3dKiwi:
-Another tute by Base80:
-The Natural Rolling Node by Westy:
-RollON by tcastudios:
The above options are really quite good and I doubt most would need another solution. But, I thought, what if one doesn’t want their wheel (or whatever) to follow a spline as the above solutions do? That seemed like a challenge.
Introducing FreeWheelin’. An Xpresso set up that allows forward and backward rotation without the need of a spline path.

This is still in beta but it’s free!
There is a bug in it at this point (see the ReadMe in the attached).
I hope you enjoy and find it useful.
