Seconc Car Parent animation

Post by truerswalia » Mon Jan 10, 2011 2:08 pm

Hi,

I am doing an animation in which second car is following the first car. I have done the first car animation using craft tools but when I am parenting the target mesh (+ sign) of second to the mesh of first car it is not animating. Can you explain the complete process of it.
In one of the tutorials of craft animations it is only mentioned to parent it but somehow the trick is not working. Need help.

Hi truerswalia,

In order for the second car to follow the first one with the help of the cross you need to activate the autonomous mode from the configuration of the second car.

Thanks Martin,

It works after few hickups. It gave me some problem when I first animated the car and then parented the target mesh of second car to the first. But when I done the reverse sequence i.e. parenting the target mesh of second car to the first car and then animating the first car. One more thing is that we need to have animation key active for both the car.

Thanks once again.

It should work just fine both ways.
