Change pivot point
« on: February 02, 2019, 02:46:11 pm »
I Started an animation for a group of 3 objects. The picked  pivot point was at one of the objects, and when I wanted to create second animition with pivot point at another object in this group, the animation  refered to the pivot point of the first animation - the first object!

Jello ZVI.
I am sure that there’s a lil misunderstanding in your description.
Do you mean the pivot feature of a rotation animation? This can be defined for each animation node individually. You can try to check the dynamic pivot option, if the pivot part is moving, too.

Or do you mean the rotation center of a camera. Then you’ll need a camera switch event so that every camera keep its own.

Hope that helps.

Thanks MWo. It was a rotation animation. I marked the dynamic pivot point and this solved the problem.

+10!! on this request

I am really missing the ability to change/reorient object pivots manually (like 3dsmax).
Almost always we receive step files and to animate with the in KS is just a nightmare.

Would greatly help us!!
