Animating a plane towing in a title card
on Apr 9, 2013 at 7:49:37 pm

Hi,

Here's what I am trying to do

1: I found an nice pic of a Boeing and keyed it
2: I animate the plane coming from the left and exiting on the right
3: As soon as the tail can be seen there is also a kind of a rope attach to it (which is a long and thin rounded rectangle) and you can see it for a few more frames
4: Then the title card comes in, son in essence the plane is towing it in.

In step 3, how can I pin the rope to the tail of the plane and the begining of the title card, so that I don't keyframe every frame?

Thanks

Parent the card to the rope and the rope to the plane.
