View Full Version : Modify pivot point for object sequence?

Is there a way in Layout to transfer certain properties to the whole sequence of objects? For example, if I brought a sequence from another program and the pivot point is not where it should be, can I apply it to one frame and then have it applied to the rest automatically?

Or is there any script that does this, either for Modeler or Layout?

Thanks,

Sebastian

Load the all objects to Modeler,
then use Collapse Object Multi Layer mode,
then use Move tool to offset to new location the all layers at once.
Then you need to use Save Layers To Folder from TrueArt's Modeling Pack

I have just tried it, and worked fine.

But original object sequence must be single layer per object.

I'm not sure if I understand what you want exactly, but for repetitive tasks LScript commander is really easy to use. Don't worry it's not really programming, it's more of a macro recorder. (or it is really programming but disguised as a macro recorder :) ) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=birP-j7Tk50

@Sensei, thanks, but I don't intend to spend any money for this, much less $300

@Danner, thanks I will take a look at it.
