animating building components
show user profile  pixel_pete
I would like to animate various building components flying in from off screen to assemble into a building. I have seen animations like this, but I have no idea how they are done. Is there a special plug-in? Or do I have to manually animate each object individually flying in? That seems very tedious.

Thanks,
Mark

if the objects did anything more complex then fly in a certain direction its probably done by hand

Build the final building, dis-assemble it by flying all the pieces outward, run the animation backwards.
