Unparenting Layers

Hi All,

I have a complex comp in which i have a few Bubbles following a null.

Now i want one of them to stop following the null and follw another null. The others will be still following the first one.

Is there a simple way of doing it?

I tried it with a follow / dely script i found on the net.
There i coul tell the Object to start following at a certain marker, but it`s not realy working because its jumping to the new position in one frame.

Any ideas?

At the point in time where the change should occur, split the layer. After the split, change the parent on the appropriate layer to the new null.

Thank You!

I already found that solution but it is not flexible enough for my composition.

Isn't there a way to script that using markers?

I just can't find anything on the web. Can't be that i'm the only one searching for that.

I'm sorry, but I have never used Corel Draw in my life. I don't think I've even seen people use it. I am of no help to you.

Everyone I know uses Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.
