Dear Friends:

I read in some older literature, there was a plugin called lock & key
which is super for animating feet when walking a character.
Is the new lightwave has something similar to this plugin ?
Can the new lightwave do this ?

Lock and key was a dinamic parenting plug if I remember correctly, LW now comes with "parenter" in the motion modifiers.

Hi:

Yes !!! i remembered in lightwave 9.6 when i hit the
'm' key (motion options) the 'parent' option is there.
But i did not know if this has the same effect as
lock & key. Thank you guys !!!

Parenter is a Motion Modifier, so in the object's Motion Options panel click the "Add Modifier" drop down menu and select Parenter.

The regular Parenting option doesn't let you change what an item is parented to.
