duplicate action

(anon125) #1

there are several wheels in the project.
i think once i get one turning i can duplicate the action for the others - which are elsewhere on the screen.

please remind me how i tell the other wheels - do the same as he does!

thanks all

Copy Transforms constraint might be a good starting point, without seeing your project, or even any images of it…

Cheers, Clock.

you can just link action to object from action editor

One “action” can drive more than one thing at a time. But if the motion of the gears is simple – they don’t change speed, they just sit there and spin – you don’t need actions at all. Just create an endlessly-repeating animation curve around the appropriate local axis. Animate each gear separately but identically.

thanks- they will all spin for a turn but not all at the same time- i should have said that earlier!
