Hinges and Dynamics in R12

Do hinges only work with dynamics? What if I want to connect a series of objects together with hinges, but only want to animate one of the objects and have the others folly according to the hinges? As soon as I attached the dynamics tags to the objects, I lose the ability to set keyframes for those objects, even if I have the dynamics turned off (so they are just collider tags).

Think of a picture frame made of the 4 separate sides, with a hinge connector at each corner. I want to animate the bottom most horizontal frame piece to swing from left to right, but have the two side rails connected so no matter where I move that bottom piece, the 2 side pieces follow.

Am I crazy?


Its more fun to ride a slow motorcycle fast than a fast motorcycle slow...
