Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with World Transform, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In this tutorial, we are going to be looking at another awesome feature that…doesn't, maybe, sound like an awesome feature, and that is World Transform.…This basically allows you to move objects, which sounds kind of lame, but it's…extremely important.…Let's look at our shattering example again.…We have this steel ball that comes in, and if you remember, we actually had three…different wineglasses set up in the exact same spot here, and a steel ball comes…in, and hits it, and it shatters. And then, we also have this table, full of cube,…basically a 3-D grid.…
So, we have got all kinds of keyframes, here, especially the steel ball, the…position of X, Y, Z. It's all being animated and everything.…If I open up World Transform, I can move this. Let's say I want to move this on…the X axis, scoot this over. I could scoot everything over without messing up…the keyframes, or adjusting the keyframes of this steel ball in any way. And also,…critical to the importance of this trick is the fact that these three…
