The helper is a dummy object whose helps to make a complex animation of water jets.

Some water jets can change their direction during the show in real time. So I highly recommend to use helpers in this case.

The helper is automatically links to a parent (source) object. So the source object will duplicate the scale, the position and the location of the helper. But the reverse is not true.


  1. Select source objects
  2. Run the function

Look at the result:
