i have a UIView with many subviews. the UIView moves across the screen, carrying all of it's subviews along for the ride. however, i would like to clip the subviews of the UIView that is animating, and select some of it's subviews to remain static, while the other subviews move across the screen with the parent view. is this possible? [EDIT] currently, to give the illusion that a subview is remaining static, i'm animating it in the opposite direction of the parent's view animation. perhaps this is the only official way to achieve this?
