Hello, im in a trouble about that.

I need to manage an slider created inside an attribute holder in a teapot.(thats the easy part). Then i have to left and right one point helper. but the thing its i need to move the teapot over each point (with an position constraint) in order were the teapot its over right helper or left helper and i move that one, teapot follows it, if someone have an idea or solution or recommendation i would appreciatte it.

Wire the slider to the position/rotation constraint's target's weights. One weight should be wired directly: "weight = slider", the other should be wired so it starts at 0 and ends at 100: "weight = 100 - slider". As you drag the slider, you can control which point the teapot follows.

Hi thanks a lot, ill tried the way you told me, but i did it in that way:

Wire my Slider to the Teapot, from Attribute Holder Slider to Position_Weight_0
normally slider = position constraint.

then

Wire my slider to the Teapot, again in the same way but in Slider to Position_Weight_1.

i use that condition: If A--B >0 then Position_Weight_1 100 else 0

but founds in a medium way

i put the slider with values from 0 to 100 and the middle is 50.

Im in the correct way?
What i should change?
