  1. I first made three actions. I split the piece for Exercise 7 into three phrases. I imported Audio file made dope sheets and did adjustments I then added gestures with the audio and dope sheet in the action window. When I got them the way I liked it in the action window I dropped them in place in the chor on top of the Keekat character. The first two actions in the chor worked just like I predicted. I then droped from the A:M Library Resolute walk before the last action "Didn't think so". ( I did not need a path I just wanted it to wallk in place.) I first checked it in the action window to see if it worked with KeeKat. It did. However when I dropped it on top of Keekat in the Chor. Keekat spread its arm out and would not swing but the legs walked like they should. The last short cut action and Resolute walk before it became corrupted. The thing that made it go away was to put a chor action over the Resolute Walk with its first and last frame posed to where I wanted the arms to be. It worked but I did not want all those extra chor actions making things more complicated. Is that the nature of the Beast? Technodandy
  2. I will try, I made actions in the action window save it them then put it in them in the chor in sequence with transitions between without corrupting what came before or after. Some of these short cut to actions as they are called in the chor. window, worked just fine that but some did not. Technodandy
  3. Hi All, I had this problem I ultimately got it to work but is was not as straightforward as I thought. May be some one can explain. Here is the Thread. http://www.hash.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=29513 I originally thought if I put actions in the chor in sequence and in proper hierarchy each actions transition would be just a matter Blend/Add or Replace but some of the actions had to be covered with chor actions which I posed the first and and last key frame with and some others in the middle to get the original shortcut to actions to work. Can someone tell me why this is so. Technodandy
  4. Hi everyone, I just posted the clip on TaoA:M http://www.hash.com/forums/index.php?showt...mp;#entry247553 Let me know what you think, Technodandy
  5. Well I do not know how I did it but I got it working. The timeline looks alot more complicated then I imagined. The problem short cut to actions I had to eclips with new chor actions and add some key frames at the beginning and end of each chor action then nudge the overloaded bones into place. I did not have to remove any propertiies or constraints. It just was not as straight forward as I hoped. Instead of four actions in the timeline I have Eight for the keekat model. Thanks everyone for your help.
  6. I was just thinking, except of the resolute walk action all the other actions have a wav file and dope sheet associated with it. I am just picking a straws. Could there be some space taken up by those functions causing some hiarchy problems?
  7. Nancy and Ken, What do you think about the clip, now that you got a preview before TaoA:M? Technodandy
  8. Did Hash change the bone stucture in the newer version of A:M so if I mix libraries I can run into incompatable objects?
  9. I made a quick walk action from scratch in the put it in the same place but it still did the same thing. I have not tried to make a walk action in chor yet, so I will try that. However, I think because resolute walk was in the A:M library it was convenient use. Technodandy
  10. Ok KenH, I will post this Project file. Maybe you can seen the Problem. Nancy you too check it out. I was hoping I could figure this out it must be some obvious thing I am missing. Project7EM.prj Technodandy
  11. I am finding some treads on this subject. I believe we hit on this subject before earlier this year. I am remembering now some of those examples you all gave me. This is a little different but close enough to those discustions that it warrants a little review on my part. I hate it when I can't remember something and have to back track. http://www.hash.com/forums/index.php?showt...=26616&st=0 Thank you very much for your help. Technodandy
  12. When I do that he goes into the default standing arms out mode for the rest of the clip. I want him freeze on his last pose.
  13. Yes. I want it to transition to the resolue walk. The space between the green lines KeeKat can not be seen. He is behind a object. I turned the chor action Active off during that period.
  14. That is right. First action is ok, Second action is ok, the resolute walk is ok until I add the last action. Then his arms swing out during the 3 repeats of the resolute walk. The first two hold last frame and transition to next action are off. The Resolutio walk, Hold last frame is off and transition to next action is on. The last Action, Hold last frame is on and transition to next action is off. All are set to replace preious action Some thing is making the arms go into the default arm spread out position after I and the last action.
  15. Hi Paul, I just tried what you suggested. Here is a snap shot of the timeline in the chor window. This is a before picture. I moved Chor action 2 above Shortcut to Keekat action1, it did not change the results. As you can see I have kept the sequences in order. May besome one can see something else I missed.
