View Full Version : Instances moving away from their sources. Why, and how can I stop this?

I've modeled an arena and have instanced 'mannequins' in the seats. All when and good until I move the arena. All the geometry in question is parented to a null. When I move the null the mannequins move from their positions. I just want them sit still in the background when I move the arena to where I need it.

These are LW native instances, not DP kit or HD. Instances are generated on a quad for each seat cushion using Polygon in the Generation tab. I've got a bit of randomization in scale, offset and rotation applied to mix things up a bit. I can't find any sort of setting in the Instances panels that would initiate this behavior.

Two pics attached. First is with parent null at origin. The second is with the parent null moved 5' on Z axis...the instances move along X.

Anybody have any ideas?

Maybe setting to LOCAL will help?
