In need of a 3DS max expert!
show user profile  iafano
Hi. I am designing indoor shutters for my house on 3ds max, and I would like to have the shutters open and close. so in other words I want all of them to pivot/rotate in the same direction, all together

hmmm....

If they rotate in the same direction,...then 1 of them will cover the window while the opposing shutter will be open?

Its as if you need them to rotate in opposing directions based on which side of the window they are on,.....however it is true that ALL right shutters would rotate the same as all other right shutters,....and all left shutters would rotate the same as all left shutters.

Something like rot(right shutter) = (0-(rot(left shutter))) would give you an inverse rotation so that both shutters open and close properly.

Sorted.

At the bottom of the orientation constraint there a box where you have to pic the target.
It's out of view in the jing.
And you're welcome :)

indeed, if you have already modeled the blinds K-tonne's method will be easier than adding the constraint to each blade in the blinds.
