Attachment constraint oddity
show user profile  magarlick
Hi all

I have attached an object to an animated surface using the Attachment constraint. I selected Set Position to put the object where I wanted it. So far so good. Now I want to move the attached object relative to the surface. So I select Set Position again and move it ... whereupon I get a pop up asking if I am sure that I want to animated this object? No I do not want to animate it, I just want to move it somewhere else. What gives? The Auto Key is off during all of the above.

Thanks,

maybe attach a helper to the surface, then align and link your object to the helper? Now you could keyframe animate the object in local space
