How to setup a crane animation step by step?

Hi there,

I am new to UE. I have passed the basics, layout, menu, etc.
My next step will be to get to the advanced tutorials. It the meantime, could someone explain how to setup a crane animation / lifting?

  1. I would like to be able to constraint all the components, so they can move on XYZ and rotate (Slewing and Luffing angles) possible to have the blueprint available and linked to a Field with input (say having a box where you enter X meters and X degrees, when you move the crane)
  2. To be able to constraint a load on the hook of the crane and add wires.

Step by step or a video/tutorial would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
