Hey!, do you think we’ll soon see a version for 2.8, I really need it!

Sure! I have to rewrite the addon anyway because my code quality became better and now I have much deeper understanding of blender.
Actually, I planned rewrite the addon at the start of the next year. But after your message I’ll do it sooner.

anything i can help with let me know! (cant code but test different scenarios)

yes please! would love it, this is a nightmare to animate without a decent tool to switch them!


Here is the very first version of DP for 2.8

Baking currently does not working - Blender crashes when I trying to bake DP animation. Not sure if its bug in Blender or bug in the addon. Have to investigate more.

Also I have a couple of question to DP users =)

  1. What is the latest version of DP you using?
    My old computer is died (some time ago), so it will take a time to dig out my working files. I’ve found online v0.51 and used it as a base for 2.8 version. If you have something newer, please share.

  2. Do you have any feature request/bug report?

Happy New Year and see you later! =)


Hi Cronk,

in this version the baking works.

it gives me a traceback call, line 351.

ModuleNotFoundError: No module name ‘Dynamic_Parent_2’

I don’t understand coding at all. I would really appreciate any help.

Ok fixed it. i just renamed the file to Dynamic_Parent_2

That’s weird. Which name it had?
Can you show full traceback?

Thank you very much ! This is really helpful addon !!!:heart_eyes:
One question: Why is it still in the process of being finalized? Because I’ve been using it for over a year and I still haven’t seen any errors !!!
Thanks again !:smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

You very welcome! =)

Well, it was my first big and complicated script (more or less). I wasn’t sure if I was doing it right, so I added “WIP” in the name of this thread. And later just forgot to delete it =)

“haven’t seen any errors” - that’s awesome news! One question - are you using version for 2.8?

Oh, I just found your upgrade after deciding to move to 2.8.
I tested it for the first time and it worked ! like 2.79, very well.

Thank you <3 You are life saver :smiley:

This is fantastic! A pretty huge time saver, thank you very much for your hard work!

Any chance we’ll see a 2.8 compatible version of this?

Here is the current version for 2.8 - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/romanvolodin/dynamic_parent/2.8/dynamic_parent.py
And I do have plan to rewrite and improve the addon. So if you (and anyone in this topic) have any request or suggestion feel free to share it


Thank you! This addon is awesome. Is there a chance you could move it over to the sidebar, in a Rigging tab? It looks pretty odd hanging out in the toolbar.


Edit: for anyone who wants to do it themselves, just make these changes:
