Constraint to XZ pos only - Possible?

Post by thorsnuts » 01 Apr 2019, 23:28

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to Constraint a null to an object's XZ position only? I would like to have the null unaffected by orientation, scale and y position.

thanks in advance...

Hi, you could do it like this:

open the global transforms of the two objects in two separate property pages. Now drag and drop the green dots near the object's X and Z over to the X and Z dots of the null. What this does is this sets an expression on the null's X and Z parameters.
