ok so i had a look at those links and got a little confused.....basically, i got a fairly simple model of a human body, all i want to do is to learn how to move all the joints, like the arms and the legs......ive tried putting pivot points on it, but i can only get one one my model...and that pivots the whole thing....how do i set up more pivots for just the arms...or legs?

Hello Vel_crow,

Just a small point, you can set up pivot points within seperate layers.
Although you may still find that you have to set the pivot points to work properly within Layout rather than Modeler.

If it is an human you are creating, look into setting up bones rather than pivot points.

Hope this points you in a certain direction.

All the best.
