Hi when I add in metaballs only one can be selected and moved, moving it rotates the other balls, and I can't move the others, this is only with metaballs. Here's a video showing what I mean https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMSJwpvO9PE&feature=youtu.be

  • $\begingroup$ You video doesn't work for me. Can you post A still image of your scene and outliner? Be aware that Metaballs have an edit mode, so the others may have been created 'inside' the main one in edit mode. $\endgroup$

Meta-objects, like many other objects, have an edit mode. In edit mode you can create more meta-objects that are part of the first, and will be transformed all together when they are transformed in object mode.

Meta-objects will still stick together regardless of the whether they have been created in object or edit mode

with Metaballs you need to select the invisible circle around the Metaballs to move them.
