Hi,

Lets say we have two null objects moving in different directions.
Lets say we have a two point polygon in the scene.

Is there any way to parent each ending point of the poly to a null ?
The idea is to have the poly stretched while the nulls move ech one in a different direction.

This would be very helpful and time saving to setup a scene with one ship firing at another.

any ideas ?
:confused:

Hm...you could give the object bones, and use the nulls as IK goals...however that won't do the stretching (without scripting at least)

Maybe...

I tried and it seems that it is not possible to set 2 goals for just one IK chain...

About Lscript : I imagine that the answer is here. Unfortunately, I don't have much time to finish the project I'm working on, and I didn't had time to learn Lscript these days (I really should learn it !).

Well, thanks anyway !

Try Sockmonkey.

I looked into the lightwave doc about Sockmonkey.

Great ! I think this will do the trick !

Thanks for help !:)
