Parenting Lights to nulls gives crazy results
on Feb 26, 2015 at 7:32:13 pm

Am I missing something here... When I parent a light to a null object, it no longer follows it correctly. It will drift left and right. I'm not sure how hard this can be since I've been doing it forever... What am I missing?!

I bet there are some stray keyframes or an errant expression hidden some place in one of the two....

...but if you're running Yosemite on a Mac, all bets are off. That OS is just plain ol' bad news for AE.

I figured it out. I had the world transform position instead of the world position pass null so my coordinates were getting jacked.
