Maybe I’m missing something, but as far as I can see this addon does nothing else than what constraints like 'copy loc/rot/scale' etc. do?

Really cool though and actually doing something in blender that does something is no small feat.

I dunno, its different to constraints, its the same but the objects complete the process in steps per scene update.

Added a new version:

I Made divsion divide from the Limit offset.
Added parent chain support, though rotation doesnt offset the location yet, location and scale work correctly.
Added a loop algorithm, to loop properties, min to max with speed.

Heres an example file:


Enable addon, save user setting, open file, Append to Scene, move Cube in the 3d view, or Alt+A to play animation.
