Parenting the Separate Ends of a 3D Object to Two Different Nulls?
on Feb 27, 2019 at 9:46:20 pm

Hey all. Long time "listener", first time "caller".

I've used After Effects for nearly a decade now and I'm shocked I've never encountered the need to tie a single object to two different nulls/track points.

I have a superhero conjuring a chain generated using Video Copilot's Element 3D and I have one end parented to the actor's fist but I also need to parent the other end to a separate null/track point on the digital saw blade element in the scene.

I'm sure it's just something simple I'm missing but I can't seem to get anywhere or find this issue addressed anywhere, so I REALLY appreciate any help anyone can offer. I tried on Video Copilot's Element 3D Forum and the post was never approved for some reason. 😐

Sorry for the sloppy screenshot but I needed to block out a few things.

Working in After Effects CC 2017 14.2.0.198 on a Late-2015 iMac using Element 3D 2.2.2, if that's relevant.

Cheers!
