Hi, I’m back for my daily question, hope you don’t mind

I want to create an animation with an moving monitor attached at hinged arms on a rails. The way I thought it would work is by stacking every segment into “Compose” operators and moving them with “Transform” operators (point 1 and 2 on the image)

The expectation was that if I rotate the “Transform” operator (Marked with 1 on the picture), I rotate Monitor (green) and MonitorArm2 (yellow) as a group with a averaged pivot point (so the compose operator is treated like a single segment). But, it seems that every attached objects rotate on their own pivot-point which results in misaligned segments. The expectation of an averaged pivot point wasn’t the most ideal situation, but could probably be resolved using an expression with some trigonometry. But I don’t know how to resolve this behaviour.

Is there a way to achieve this?

I would greatly help if a future update of RC can have some extra radio options in the “compose” operator:

- Leave pivot point at individual segments (Current default)

- Adopt pivot point from the first segment

- Move pivot point to X[ ] Y[ ] Z[ ] (edit boxes with the averaged pivot points as defaults)
