    Is there a way to create a super controller in Motion? As a simple example: I have 2 objects – a circle and a rectangle, whose position I would like to manipulate together. In Smoke, I have an Axis node that I can use to do this. So if I change the x position of the Axis to 50, both the circle and the rectangle move 50 pixels along the x-axis FROM their current position.

    Is there something similar in Motion?

    Thanks in Advance,

    Take a look at the “Link” behavior.
    For more advanced dependencies, you can use rigs.
