Modelling and Setting Up Rail / Roller Coaster Tracks

Upon the request of  a former colleague and good friend, I decided to post a video showing exactly how to set up a roller coaster track in Maya.

In this video I show how I go about modelling roller coaster tracks. In the video I go through the technical steps as well as the thought processes I go through my head as I tackle the task.

This video is a bit long but I believe I cover quite a bit of ground on how to handle curves, extrusion, motion path, constraints and the animation snapshot tool.

I hope you find something useful from the video
