Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Parenting, part of After Effects CC 2019 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Speaker] Parenting allows for one layers transformations…to drive the transformations of one or more child layers.…Here, we'll see why parenting is a powerful technique…that allows us to not only be more efficient…in our animations, but also see how it provides…an opportunity to create more complex motions.…So in this first example, here, I've got three nulls.…And each of those nulls has rotation key frames,…and so those rotation key frames go from zero to 45 degrees,…and then back again.…Currently, they're just rotating by themselves.…This sun doesn't have any animation with it.…
If you don't already have it, go ahead and right click on…any one of the columns here and make sure that parent…is enabled that'll expose this parent column here.…So the first thing when we want to parent is…we can select our child layer and either pick whip…or select via the list here the layer…that we'd like to be the parent.…So in this first example, I'm going to select the sun…as my child and then I'm going to pick whip…to the top Left…
