I animate the body of a character and recorded its animation with a PointCache modifier..now I need to link a prop to the character's head so that it follows it..I tried linking it, and attaching it but the prop stays still while the mesh moves..how can I stick it to the mesh for it to follow the animation?

thanks,

Luisk

Use Attachment Constraint on the prop.

Select the prop.
Animation/Constraint/Attachment Constraint
And select the pointCached Mesh.
The prop will stick to the mesh.

If you need to place the prop in a different position than the default, then go to the motion panel and click on 'Set Position' . This can also be animated.
