Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Forming an attachment, part of Animating in 3ds Max: Constraints, Controllers, and Wire Parameters.
- [Instructor] One of the nice visualization options…that can be found in 3ds Max are the parametric…door, window and stair tools…that can be used to quickly and easily create…and then animate set objects.…For instance, in our scene here,…we have a pivot door setup that if I just hit play,…has a 200 frame animation that shows it…both opening and then closing again.…The obvious problem, though,…is that our separately modeled handle…doesn't travel with it.…This is the kind of problem that we will probably run into…time and time again whilst animating in Max,…and for different reasons, of course,…according to the nature of our scene.…
Now we may think that we could solve this…by simply linking the handle to the door…and then have them animate together.…Well, to try that, let's select the handle's base object,…which itself is already the parent…of the whole handle assembly,…and then link that to the door.…We can confirm that the link has worked…by setting the scene explorer to Sort By Hierarchy Mode,…and then noting that the handle objects…
