Hi, im new to the whole synfig thing (actually to animating in general), so my question sounds maybe a bit dumb, but please try to help me.
My problem: I need to attach the two points of a line to two different circles, which can move independently from each other (not encapsulated)… is that possible?
and second… I don’t think that I mean this… I really mean a line (spline, curve, Whatever) with two ending points, which are each attached to a different circle (rectangle…what you like). The two circles can move free and independently, and the line always connects them…
This can be done in a way similar to what “Following a Spline” page explains. The difference is that each endpoint of the line will follow different splines (BTW, Synfig can create circles as splines, in fact that’s the preferred way).
Notice when I select all three shapes and “Link” their origin, this is important to get the line to really connect to each circle.
After linking origins, I needed to move the shapes back to their original position (to adapt to the new combined origin)
To link each endpoint to each circle I needed to select the line and the circle, then select the point I wanted to link, then right-click on the circle and choose “Link To Spline” (this is explained on following a spline page)
