The first question I have is: How do I join 2 polygons? I took an object and mirrored it. Now I would like to join them so they are one object with one set of attributes. My second question is: What would be the best way to simulate the alternating lights on a fire truck?

Any suggestions, tips or just a direction in the manual would be greatly appreciated!:)

Thanks,

Casey

1. First off, make sure they are on the same layer in modeller. Do the mirrored side and the primary side have intersecting points? if they do, you would hit m to merge them. Otherwise you would have to adjust and weld the points where you want them to intersect.

2. Just animate one light's intensity to go on, off, and on again. Then go into graph editor and change end behavior to cycle. You could copy and paste this to the other light's intensity and just shift them in the graph editor. Either that or do another on, off, on keyframe setting on the other light. Again change end behavior to cycle.
