View Full Version : Is there a way to parent each end of a 2-pt poly to different objects?

I would like to move two objects, independent of one another, and keep them connected by a line. The line will indicate communication between them. I had created this effect w/particles in the past, but my LW is crashing and I am under a deadline.

Is there a way to use this approach as a alternative?

Well there`s probably a more elegant solution, but how about putting two bones into the two point poly, assigning 100% weight maps to each point and checking the Use Weight Maps Only bone object property. Then you can add Simple Point Constraints to the bones in their motion options panel, constraining their positions to anything you want, nulls most probably.

Cheers,

Or you can use Sockmonkey.
