so, what is unparent? is that even a real word?

yes, its a real word, and has nothing to do with children, or parenting. its just a geeky 3d graphics term.
in 3D art terms unparent means to break the connection between a node an its parent in a hierarchy. see told ya, geeky. but have you ever had to search for a website name? there's nothing left, i even tried, and it was taken, seriously.... i wanted a name with a graphics connection, that was a bit catchy, and easy to remember for graphics people and non. so after a long session in front of a domain name search engine, unparent it is.
anyway, "unparent" is keith bruns, a senior video game artist living and working in Los Angeles, CA.
