Using motion Thread - selecting more than one object

Hi Lumionheads,

Can someone please advise if it is possible to select more than one item to move to create motion.  Think of a animating a steam engine and having the steam stack follow the train engine.

Regards,

Not at the moment, but Ferry is aware of this. He mentioned something about wanting to add CTRL + Rectangular selection to the "Animate objects" effect so that you can select and move several objects at the same time.

At the moment, the "Animate objects" effect lets you animate user-imported models, Transport models and People. It is not yet possible to animate any of the particle effects, such as smoke.

Morten, you are ever - consistently helpful.. THANK YOU!  Your feed back about Ferry looking to building in CTRL + Rectangular selection to the "Animate objects" is exactly what I tried to do, obvously now knowing this will not work.

I, and I assume many of us, would be most grateful if you add this feature to any software update.  I would really enhance Lumion as a useful feature.

Best regards,

Mike "blendman"
