Hi everyone, I have a quick question.

Can I fix the posistion and rotation of an object to a point or face normal in Layout ? basically I have an object that is going to be doing lots of deforming and moving and I want to have an object thats basically glued to a certain point on that object.

(the reason its just not part of that layer is that this sub-object has its own morphs and small transforms also)

Any ideas or solutions ?

DPont's DPKit should do what you want. It comes with a nodal motion modifier. You can feed the position of a point from an object to the object you want to move.

If you are looking to do it without a third party plugin, you can use clothfx and save out a motion path of a vertex. Although it does not update if the motion changes on the object. So if you can, it would be probably the best decision to follow nickdigital's suggestion.
