    I know this is an old tutorial, but I have to ask; is this broken in later versions of Blender? I can’t insert a keyframe on that property :/ Neither by pressing “i” nor by right clicking and selecting.

      I believe it changed in 2.6, can’t remember the new command but it will be in the docs somewhere.

    yup, doesn’t work in recent builds – can’t insert a keyframe – so what’s this relations layers thing for then?
