· Lesson: Rigging the lid · Course: Rig and Animate a Treasure Chest in Blender 2.8
is there a shortcut to put the pivot point directly in the middle of the two hinges. I put my pivot point in the middle of the world origin and i forgot how to move it. if i did move it i wouldn't know how to get it in the exact right spot
Hi patdoc, select the two hinges and then: SHIFT+S > Cursor to Selected.
the whole lid is one object so i wont be able to select two hinges individually. hitting shift s then cursor to selected wont change the pivot point which is what i am trying to do
You can select the hinges in Edit Mode, place your Cursor there, like above and then in Object Mode go to Object > Set Origin > Origin to 3D Cursor.
(You said Pivot Point and the 3D Cursor can be the Pivot Point, but you probably meant the Origin...)
