Animation loss when ungroup?
show user profile  TuPP3
I made animation which included part that was grouped together from 3 parts. Then I ungrouped it after animation to make UV cordinates for each part, now I played animation and realized that it isn't animating anymore! Problem here is that I cannot undo to point it was grouped, so is my 3 hour animation work lost for that part? I tried to group them again but it isn't animating.
