Hi,

I have parented a bunch of layers to a null object.
Now I want to parent only a few of those layers to a new null object.
Is this possible?

If you are asking if one object can have 2 parents, the answer is no.

You can can daisy chain parents though. For instance 3 items may be parented to Null 1 and 10 items parented to Null 2. Then Null 1 is parented to Null 2. This way if you only want to those 3 items to move, you just move Null 1. But if you want everything to move you move Null 2.
