I am trying to parent two empties to control the extremity of the object as pivot point

enter image description here

as you can see it works fine for the first one
(the object and the other pivot point are affected, which is what I want)

enter image description here

But I can't parent back the right empty to the left empty (error message "parent loop") enter image description here

Any idea how to achieve this kind of empty controller?

(left empty control relatively to it's position, the rotation of the part and the position/rotation of the right empty. Right empty control, relatively to it's position, the rotation of the part and the position/rotation of the left empty)?

One way is to use Active element as pivot point.

  1. Parent both empties to your object
  2. Set Pivot point > Active element
  3. Select your object and then the empty you want to pivot around
