How to create a Physics door with a hand animation?

How could I set up a physics based door, which is controls similar to “amnesia the dark descent” doors.
I was aiming for a first person view, where you control the opening of the door with the mouse along with the character hand being animated with the door. Could I do something with sockets? Connect the door knob with the wrist??

Any help is appreciated :slight_smile:
Thanks. Sorry if this is too much to ask. I’m a noob.

You would probably want to control timeline of an animation using mouse position. So you have an animation of a character opening the door (which works as normal) but you set the current time of the animation based on how far the mouse has moved from it’s start point.
