View Full Version : Parenting scale not right in [8]

06-02-2004, 12:31 PM
Long story short, I have old models that have to be resized for a new project. I created a simple scene with a null scaled down to .027. Each time I need one of these older models I load them in Layout, parent to null and then save transformed. Done.
Buuuuuut in [8] I parent the old objects to the same null and their scale is now over 36! WTF?!

I'd look up what's going on in the manual, but....

I'd check the help but that doesn't seem to work on my system. The browser just hangs.

There some new button I have to push or dance I have to do so parenting works the way it ALWAYS used to?

In the mean time, once again, it's back to 7.5.

That's odd, seems like the scale is getting inverted? 1/.027 is around 37.

Weird, isn't it?

Just curious, what happens if you scale the null up to 37? If it is getting inverted that should do what you want, albeit in a decidedly half @ssed way.
