I have a Synfig animated robot that can move left and right, raise and lower its arm, and open and close a claw. I want to have the robot pick up an object, an imported PNG, and move it to a new location in the frame. The motion is to both raise the robot arm and move to the right. I am unable to make the PNG image stay in sync with the robot’s claw.
Is there a way to “attach” one object to another so that both follow the same path, then “detach” later? (I’ve experimented with grouping, but I appear to be unable to “ungroup” at the end of the motion time, when the robot should “put down” the object.)
If there’s a tutorial that addresses this. a pointer would be most helpful.
