4 legged robot in E3D

Postby Velocity9 on 09/2/2016, 8:11 am

Hi, pleas help me here, i am trying to animate a 4 legged robot using E3D, put each part of the leg into different layers,
had to split them in to parts in blender first, put the different parts/layers into different aux channels.
Now the issue i am facing is that the robot legs are in parts, no father child connection, so if i rotate the foot or the thigh of the robot, gabs will show between the parts.
I cant put the parts in same layer or same aux channel because i want them to have independent movements!

Anyone have an idea what i can do!? Any help is greatly appreciated!
