Animate a Pin Art Toy in 3ds Max

I created this tutorial after reading “How do I animate a pin art desk toy” in issue 106 of 3D World. It also reminded me of the really cool video for Nine Inch Nails’ “Only”. However the tutorial was setup in Maya, so I decided to take a crack at it in 3ds Max. This tutorial was the inspiration for the other two Pin Art Tutorials on this site. As I state later in the tutorial, this can be setup with any B/W image or video clip. I am just using a procedural texture to make things easier.
