…Now let's take a look at how to further…organize our objects in Maya, and that's by creating hierarchies.…Now, many times you want to move an…object, and have other objects move along with it.…For example, this little red wagon, you want all…of the parts of that wagon to move as one.…Now, if we take a look at this in the outliner, you'll…see that we have all of these different parts for this wagon.…But, if I select just one part, say the body…of this wagon, and I move it, nothing else follows along.…
That's because nothing is connected, it's not in a hierarchy.…Now, hierarchy allows use to connect…objects mechanically so that they move together.…So, let's take a look at how to do this.…It's really very simple.…Let's go ahead and start with the wheels.…So in this, I have two objects here.…I've got a tire, which is this object here.…And then I've got another object called mag…wheel, which is basically the rim for the tire.…Now, these are separate objects, so they don't…move together and we want to connect them.…
