Hi there,
This is so frustrating because I know the answer must be simple - and I just can't see it. Ok, lets say i have a box, and for the first few frames of animation the pivot point is in the centre. Then I decide, from frame 15 till 25 (not important just an eg) i want the pivot point to be on the corner of the box. Now when I do that, the pivot point changes for the whole animation!!! I even tried to give th epivot point a keyframe: I pushed insert, and then tried to add a key for the pivot point, and then only on the next frame move it - nothing seems to work!! What do I do?? Thanks
AAAAH!

Hi

By default, that is NOT keyable, you need to expose the Rotate Pivot attributes,

go to
WINDOW > GENERAL EDITORS > CHANNEL CONTROL

search in the middle for ROTATE PIVOT X, ROTATE PIVOT Y, ROTATE PIVOT Z
selected and move them to the keyable area by clicking on the <
that will make them available in the channel editor and you can key them at will

try it
