If there isn't a way to animate 2 objects, it would be very useful, please consider it. If there is a way, please tell me. This would be useful for say, a person, keyed onto a 3d object so you can animate them together. The 3d object would of course be 2d, like my recent visual concept thread in the film makers forum. Another good thing would be the ability to import alpha channeled images and aniamtions/video clips.

Are you referring to Chromanator? If so, you can already import alpha channel stuff. Chromanator automatically detects and uses the alpha.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by your other idea...linking objects together perhaps?

Yes, like your Alam DV3 idea, only in Chromanator. Just Merging two objects together perhaps. And as for tha Alpha channels, I also mean exporting with an Alpha Channel, this would make plugin making easier and could also help in other ways.
