Now I'm ready to add another link target to transfer the parenting to the robot arm's wrist. I'll move my Track Bar down to the time at which I want the link to be transferred. And it will be some time right before the robot arm lifts up. I'll set that to let say 2 seconds 25 frames. Then I'll go up here the Motion panel and click Add Link and then click on the robot arm's wrist, and a new link has been created.
And after that point in time, now the cylinder is linked to the robot arm's wrist. Wow, that's pretty cool! And then I just wanted to drop at about let's say 5 seconds 0 frames, I'll link the cylinder back down to the floor. With the Cylinder selected, in the Motion panel you'll see that the Add Link button is still active. All I need to do now is click on the room and now the object is linked back to the room at frame 150.
It's not going to drop by itself. I will have to animate that in the next movie. When I am finished, I want to turn Add Link back off again.
