    Parenting of layers not working correctly.

    jamesfrewin

      Hi,

       

      I am creating an animation of a girl walking for a children's charity, I am having some trouble with the parenting of layers for the legs.

       

      I have created three separate layers for the legs.

       

      "Leg Right" = Right Leg

      "Shoe Red Right" = The upper part of the right shoe

      "Shoe Sole Right" = The sole of the right shoe

       

      "Leg Left" = Left Leg

      "Shoe Red Left" = The upper part of the shoe

      "Shoe Sole Left" = The sole of the shoe

       

      The Legs are parents of the "Skirt".

       

      The Legs are parents of the corresponding shoe parts for the each leg.

       

      For some reason even thought the shoes on the right side have the parent set as the right leg, they only move when I edit the left leg.

       

      I've included some screenshots below.

       

      The legs and shoes =  imgur: the simple image sharer

       

      The layers with the parent options viewable = imgur: the simple image sharer

       

      Screenshot showing me moving the left leg and the changes happening on the right shoe as well = imgur: the simple image sharer

       

      If you could help me figure this out that would be greatly appreciated!

       

      Thanks!
