Folding (accordion) Doors tutorial

this is actually an updated version of an older tutorial I did on Rigging a Folding Door

hope someone finds it usefull

Hi Norvman. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Thanks for making the video. I’m using Blender 2.8 and in Pose mode, I don’t seem to be able to select my door objects to set the parenting. I’ve tried everything and it just won’t let me select anything other than another bone in that mode. Am I doing something wrong? Also, I followed your instructions but my root, controller and individual door bones ended up in three seperate armatures. They are parented to the root in the collections window. Will this be OK?

Thanks again.

Never mind. I worked it out. You have to select the door, then shift-select the object with the door bones, enter pose mode, select the bone to be the parent for the door, then CTRL-P - Bone.
