Does anyone know what websites show tutorials on methods like walking, raising arms, or anything else like that?
When working with an object's subparts, to make it look like it is walking for instance, the subpart can be turned or rolled without it detaching from the main object. So you want to make the leg and knee turn to make it look like they are bending while you move the whole object forward.
If the leg is moved forward it will stay "ahead" of the rest of the object when the whole object moves.
The other thing than can make a part "act up" is if the vehicle of the subpart (under properties) is changed to the world. It is this property that "attaches" the subpart to its parent.
