I'm sure this is a common problem people face but I can't find much on this topic after some googling.
I have a sword, and a player, both which are sprites. I want the sword to be attached to the player -- Normally you would be able to just child the sword sprite to the player sprite and change the relative position of the sword sprite -- but my player's hands move during the walking animation.
So is there an easy way of moving the position of the sword sprite during each frame of the player walking animation? Or some way of attaching the handle of the sword sprite to the player's hand?
