Parenting

The parenting selection available in blender is used to determine the node structure of the output.

Parenting is straightforward to configure in blender:
  1. First select the child node with right-click (in the example it is the right aileron ~CS_RMA)
  2. Hold shift and select the parent node with right-click (~CS_RMW)
  3. Once both objects are selected hit Ctrl-P to assign parent
  4. Click on the 'Make Parent' option to complete the assignment

It is important to select the child node first otherwise the parenting goes in the wrong direction. Take a look at the Outliner window to see and confirm the node structure.
