Dear Forum Goers,
I am new to flash cs4 and I so far love it! BUT, I can not figure out how to do what I want to do with a simple test project.
Here is the low down on it. I want to create a simple crane arm that has a ball and chain attached to it.
The arm is in four pieces a lower arm which has two bars and an upper arm which has two bars. The chain (which looks like a bar) is another piece and a ball (which is the circle) is another part. I want to have the two upper bars on the lower and upper arm have a pivot point and the same for the lower section of the arm also have a pivot point. I want the upper arm to have a single connection point between the two bars where the chain would meet and I want to have pivot points on the ends of the lower arms bars where it connects to the "control box". Attached is what I have scribbled together and also attached is a photo that highlights in pink circles where I want pivot points. I want to use bones for this because that is what I think I am suppose to use but if there is a better way to do it please fill me in.
The files are located at
If none or part of this is confusing please tell me and I will rewrite it.
Are you telling me that no one knows how to use multiple bones on an object? Or is it just that the adobe forums are the worst place to ask questions because everyone comes here with their questions?
