View Full Version : Parenting an Emitter

11 November 2008, 05:23 AM
Hi all! I had yet another n00b question: How do I parent an emitter to a Null object? I know it sounds childish and quite basic, but I'm kinda stuck. I managed to parent the particle layer to the Null, but that doesn't provide the desired result. I looked & clicked around but couldn't manage to hook up the EMITTER's tranformation to the Null. I'd appreciate any/all help you guys can throw my way! Thanx!

Link it using Expressions in the Timeline. Use the link buttons to make it a little easier.

Expressions!? Oh crap! For me, expressions are like charging a heavily fortified trench during WW1! Bound to be bloody, messy, painful....EEEEEEEKKKK! But thanks nonetheless, I'll definitely give it a shot. :)
