View Full Version : Parent/Child inheritance

06 June 2002, 02:39 PM
Hi all

Parenting enables the Child to inherit say the position of the Parent. Is there a way I can disable say the Y axis position inheritance?
For instance, in MAX, if you go to Hierarchy->Link, you can specify which axes are affected by parenting in pos, rot and scale. Can I do this in XSI?

Go in the Local Transforms of the child object. In the Options tab, uncheck what you want to not be affected by the parent.

I don't know a way to affect only one or two axises.

Hope this helps
Salutations - Cheers

Solved. It was pretty easy to acheive the effect using expressions...Should have guessed it earlier.Well..
