Help combining finished model for rendering!
on Jul 28, 2007 at 2:54:04 am

Hello. I have just finished my model. It consists of multiple polys and a few nurbs. I set up a skeleton and did some basic arm and leg animation, but when I go to select the whole thing and try to move it as one object, it comes apart and doesnt move as one. I have tried selecting each piece in the outliner, I have tried to group it, but that still doesnt let the object stay together. I need to do some animation where this object looks like its walking. My pivot points for each object are different places as well, could this be the problem?

edit: the model no longer contains nurbs. I changed everything over to polys and it still isnt working... hmmmm

Don't select the object's geometry as well as its skeleton when trying to move it. The skeleton takes over the control of the movement. Do a search for the 'double transform' effect and you'll find plenty of information.
