The possibility to attach a container layer to a model joint is very powerful:

This is powerful because pretty much all layer types can be attached to a container:
-text layers
-particle layers
-camera layers
-model layers

Here's a collection of shows demonstrating the possibilities.

The octopus model is not included, but comes with the 3D Viewer app, that is part of Windows:

It can be created in the following way:
-Start the 3D Viewer app
-Search for "juggling octopus"
-Click on the octopus
-Choose FILE > SAVE AS and save as a GLB file.

When the show asks for the octopus model, point to the saved model.

I don't have this model if I look for it in the library

Franco, I found the octopus in the windows-10 3D viewer library.
Here is a download for it:

@decentralized You were very kind, thank you.
But how come I can't find it? Maybe it refers to another library.... dunno?

Franco Aversa, 11 months ago

The octopus is in the animated directory

I can see in your screenshot that the name of the model is translated into French. Maybe Franco has to search for "Polpo" rather than for "Octopus".

Lucky for me, the Dutch word is also Octopus 😃🦑

Yes, it is true, I had imagined it too but I did not find it the same.
It is inserted as "Polipo giocoliere"

Thank you very much for your help

Franco Aversa, 11 months ago

This is wonderful! Thanks a lot, Michiel!
