How do I animate two objects together?

Post by Shiny Rice » Mon Aug 01, 2011 11:43 am

I don't know if I got to parent them or what. I mean, they have to move together. (p. ej. landing gear and wheels)

If the wheels are not the parents of the landing gears, they won't follow the movement of the gears when they'll retract.

Alternatively if you want to do it in blender right click the object you want then hold shift and right click the object you want to make a parent. Then go into Object > Parent > Make Parent and click OK. Hope this helps.
