The Volkswagen Type 1, more commonly known as the Beetle or Bug, is an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen from 1938 until 2003. Although the names "Beetle" and "Bug" were quickly adopted by the public, it was not until August of 1967 that VW itself began using the name Beetle in marketing materials in the US. In Britain VW never used the name Beetle officially. It had previously been known only as either the "Type I" or as the 1200 (twelve-hundred), 1300 (thirteen-hundred) or 1500 (fifteen-hundred), which had been the names under which the vehicle was marketed in Europe ; the numbers denoted the vehicle`s engine size in cubic centimetres. In 1998, many years after the original model had been dropped from the lineup in most of the world (production continued in Mexico until 2003), VW introduced the "New Beetle" (built on a Volkswagen Golf platform) and bearing a cosmetic resemblance to the original.
This pack includes two versions, red and green. Any colour can be easily created by changing the hue.
Moving Parts on the Beetle are as follows:
The Driver Door and Passenger Door each have a "Perform" menu to "Open Door" & "Open Door, Pause, Close Door". Additionally, the wheels each have a Perform menu to rotate. Select Rear Wheels - Perform/Rear Wheels Turn. Select Front Right Wheel - Perform/RF Wheel Turn. Select Front Left Wheel - Perform/LF Wheel Turn. When using the Perform on the Wheels, Let each of the 3 animation Performs play out til they finish on the timeline. Once they have played out, you can expand the motions on the timeline for slower rotation or contract them for faster rotation. Once you have the wheel speed set up on the 3 items, you can Loop the animations for as long as required in your scene.
