Ok, I am obviously don’t SOMETHING wrong. Let me descirbe my situation.
I have some curves that I have animated via mesh keys. The curves are actually two curves in the same curve object. (i.e. two strings) I have two particle emitters that I want to attach to end of each of the two strings. So I select the first emitter and then the curve object, go into edit mode, select the verts at the end of the string, press Ctrl-P and click on “Make Vertex Parent”. That works fine.
Now I go out of edit mode, de-select everything, then select the second emitter and then the curve object, go into edit mode, select the other end of the string, press Ctrl-P and click on “Make Vertex Parent”. Instead of parenting it to the verts that are currently selected, it partents it to the old set of verts, which is the end of the string that already has an emitter on it. I try again, same thing. I even tried clearing the parent of the first emitter and tryed to parent it to the other end of the string. No matter what I do, it keeps parenting to the same set of verts. I even tried makeing a copy of the curve, didn’t work. It would only parent to that old set of verts.
What drives me nuts is that I opened up a new Blend file to test it out, and it works fine!
WHAT is wrong here!?!?!? :x
