Question Time, the Return! Morphs and Parenting

Back again for more! :) After a fruitful night of purchases (which I really couldn't afford, but that's my own darn fault), I now have the Nano Suit for Genesis. What I don't have, though, is nay way to hide the helmet. The readme says the nano suit comes with morphs to hide the helmet and the visor, but I have no idea how to get morphs to work.

Also, how does one parent a prop to a character? I'd like to have a character holding a weapon, but have no idea how to make the weapon stay in place in relation to the hand. Any advice would be most welcome. :)

Thanks again for all your help!

    Hi jerriecan :)

    Morphs normally work by adjusting a slider control in the "parameters" section.

    select the clothing and go to parameters. look down the list of morph controls.

    To parent an object to a figure's hand,. you would open the "Scene" tab, and then drag the prop in the list,. and drop it onto the figure's hand in the list.
    this makes the prop a "Child" of the hand,. so when the hand moves, the prop also moves.

    Hope it helps :)
