Connect Multiple Layers to a single Layer or Selected Layer
on Feb 19, 2018 at 2:16:54 pm

Hi Everyone,
I have at least 80 points (layers), attached image for ref, in my comp which need to connected by a rope. My problem is that I have to connect that 80+ points to single null so that I can animate the null i.e. just a wiggle. I am aware of some plugins like motion 2 and connect layers but that will consume more time as I need to connect every layer individually to null or layer. Is it possible to connect all those 80+ Points or selected to a single null or a layer?

Plexus will connect the single point to the outlying points automatically - use the Beams Renderer.
However, all these layers have to be 3D layers and both sets of points have to be set into different Plexus groups - not a difficult thing to do as Plexus is able to create groupings based on layer type and naming conventions.
