Is there a way to assign multiple targets for an object to follow (rather than one only assigment like in the motion options panel)?

Any work arounds, tricks, etc.?

Thanks!

yes... just layer clone items... a to b, b to c, etc. You can use various options to match, target or constrain things.

Thanks guys!

Walfridson: I'll give it a look in just a second.

RebelHill: Not sure what you mean. Do you mean actually clone object layers, or there a "layer clone" function that I'm unaware of. With all those options, sounds like something specific.

Thanks!

I mean have multiple copies of a single item each of which taget something different... then use constraints to match/switch your main original item between their positions/rotations.... you build layers for the one item through clones, each of which can be controlled differently.

rig_pt4.... notice how Im using multiple item copies and constraining between them for the limb repinning... and how I use a cloned chain in the same way to provide the stretchy IK switching.
