    how to parent an object to a point selection set

    im trying to parent a hook to the end of a polygon chain (cloth FX applied to the chain) so it will swing around at the end of the chain. i have a single point in a selection set at the bottom of the chain that i want to parent the hook object to. any ideas anyone? so far ive tried to use the motion designer, and ive looked into the hardLink tutorial.

    This should be pretty easy. Did you parent the hook to the string layer? Other than that, with such a basic setup all you need to care about is that the hook is placed rightabout where you want it attached in relation to string.

    Other options are 3rd party parent-to-point plugins or you could also bake out a points motion to a null using EditFX (can't remember what the function was called; but it's at the bottom of the panel ).
