View Full Version : Null and parenting question

Hello,

I have a Null created in Layout with a few objects parented to that null.

I now want to move only the Null position because it's not in the position I want it to be. I do not want the parented items to move.

Is there a way to move "only" the null without having to unparent the objects that are parented to it and then re-parent them after moving the Null?

Thanks,

In LW8, go to the Modify Tab, select Move Pivot. This will allow you to mov the pivot point around to where you want it. Then deselect the tool.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. I tested that and understand how it works now. :)

I think the thing that confused me was on some Nulls I would get this error:

Warning: An item's rotation and scale should be reset before moving it's pivot point.

Anyway,

Thanks for the help.
