    I need eight propellers to spin (rather quickly) in all animations, but I cannot time it right to span across every animation.

    I need to know how to make an animation constant, like the flies buzzing around the zombie, or the whirling gears on the steam tank.

    Here is a picture of what I am working on.

    Create a global sequence with the required duration, then tell your sequence data (e.g. rotation) to use it.

    Copy the scrips from my Airship model xD. Remember compared to the standar when rotating if the animation stand and ends with the same frame the model looks like spins, stops and return to position instead of a continous spin.

    This is what global sequences are for.

    Here is a screenshot of the current version of the model as a parting gift for the thread.
