Linking (cont.)

Let's try the next planet. Using the SELECT AND LINK tool again, select the orbit of the first moon for planet4, and drag-link it to the planet. Do the same for the second moon. Press the play button as a test - the orbits (and the moons) should now be following the planet around the sun, doing their own rotations as they do.

The last one is planet five. This will be a three level hierarchy. Use the SELECT AND LINK tool, and attach the orbit of the two main moons to the planet one at a time. Once you've done that (and tested the link worked by pressing play), we then need to add in another part of the hierarchy. Use the Select and Link tool to attach the orbit of moon 2a (the moon around a moon) to Moon2 (the moon it's orbiting around).

So now we've set up our solar system and it's nearly looking sweet. One more thing to do.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
