Target: Rotate Parent and Child without affecting Child's Location


Parent A

  • Child A
  • Child A

When rotating Parent A. Child A and Child B also rotates with the parent object as pivot point (as expected). But how to make the child objects A and B rotate in their individual origins.

Also tried locking the location for child A and B, but still when parent's rotation changes, child objects location also changes according to the parent change in rotation.

    $\begingroup$ Don't parent the objects at all when you don't want them to move their position. Use a Copy Rotation constraint. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 11, 2023 at 21:09

If you only want to copy the rotation of the parent object without affecting anything else on the children, you shouldn't parent them at all in the first place. Just use Copy Rotation constraints on the objects that should inherit the rotation and set the one you rotate as Target:
