I have two objects one Parent and one Children. I have translate animation on parent, but when I add keyframe to children, children jump to another position in playback. What I am doing wrong? In Blender I can not animate children??

  • $\begingroup$ Can you post the .blend or a screenshot and tell us what version of Blender you're using? I'm not having this issue in the latest build of Blender with two parented cubes. $\endgroup$ – CharlesL Mar 5 '14 at 20:13
  • $\begingroup$ I found it ! :) I had turn on Visual Keying in Preferences under Editing. Is it normal behaviour with this ON? $\endgroup$ – Cenda Mar 5 '14 at 20:25
  • $\begingroup$ Yep. It can sometimes cause a bunch of issues with constraints and parents. $\endgroup$ – CharlesL Mar 5 '14 at 20:29
  • $\begingroup$ From manual: Visual Keying When an object is using constraints, the objects property value doesnt actually change. Visual Keying will add keyframes to the object property, with a value based on the visual transformation from the constraint. ... but I still dont understand what does it mean :) Have I report bug with my children parent behaviour? Why there is not any exception. $\endgroup$ – Cenda Mar 5 '14 at 20:34
  • $\begingroup$ I think it has something to do with the parent position affecting the child position, and the child position is relative to the parent position somehow. $\endgroup$ – CharlesL Mar 5 '14 at 20:41

If I disabled Visual Keying under Editing in User Preferences, problem was solved.
