Linking vertices to control objects
show user profile  lezley1986
Is there a simple way i can link vertices to a spline object to control rotation?
I am making a similar object to a camera shutter, and wanted to link the inside vertices of the cylinder object to a spline controller to simply animated the rotation of the lens open and closing.
Thanks

Not 100% on what you are asking but you can link individual (or soft selected) verts to objects directly by using a 'linked xform' modifier

You can use wire parameters to link rotation of object A to object B .etc

You can use the parameter editor to add sliders and spinners for things like that too.
