Move only dummy


I have a box (child) linked to a dummy (parent) and I’d like to move the dummy to the 0,0,0 without moving the object. I wrote a small script but it doesnt seem to work

maxops.affectchildren = false
for i in helpers do
i.pos = [0,0,0]

It is activating the [Don’t affect children] button but moving the pivot moves the box as well. Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

  1. Unlink the child
  2. Move the parent
  3. Link the child to the parent


Doh! yeah, that would also be a way. Thank you

maxops.affect children wont work in max or am I misunderstanding its usage?
