Grouping vs. Parenting

Grouping two or more objects together connects them with an additional node (Figure 6.3) to be used when you want to perform an action to both, such as moving them at the same time. Even though they are grouped, you can still select one of the objects and move or perform an action on it without affecting the other objects in the group. You can also select the group node and affect the grouped objects as if they were just one object (Figure 6.4).

Figure 6.3. The top node is used to change values of the entire group without changing the current values of the individual objects.
