Joining

Not too sure if this is the right section but here goes!
Is there a way of joining several objects but keeping their individual animation?
I have a pistol I modelled and animated but to make a game using it ideally I’d like the gun as one object. Can somebody help me please?
Thank you.

You could just parent all the separate objects to a central object or an empty then just move the empty.

Yeah that’s how I have it set up now. But I want to make it into a game, so making all the separate parts animate at the right time is kind of awkward. It doesn’t matter too much but I was just hoping there would be an easier way of doing it. Thanks anyway.

Also you could parent just one object to the other, and only select the parent object… I know it’s a bit awkward, but it should be fine once you get used to it…
