Adding action objects with multiple actions

Recommended Posts

I'm attempting to add parts to  a model in a choreography using multiple actions, each action containing many action objects. When I add the first action, all the objects within it appear in the chor. But if I add another action, the previous one disappears. I read the manual about action objects and assumed the problem was related to "Hold last frame", "Transition to next action" and "Blend method". I thought the best combination was ON, ON & ADD. However I can only see one of the actions if the "Hold last frame" of the other is turned OFF. 

What am I missing?

Without seeing the actual case... Is the red bar of the first action getting compressed down to nothingness when you add the second action?

I'm sorry Robert I don't know to what your referring...red bar...getting compressed? 

If it helps, here's two screen grabs showing either one or the other action object sets being visible.

When i say "Make it less than zero" I really meant "make it more than zero"  🙄

Thanks for your efforts Robert. I don't think I had ever used that frame block view of a chor.

After watching your experimentation I decided to start from scratch to see if I could reproduce it using a new project, chor and just the tree trunk and branch model ... and I couldn't … still had the same problem. After playing around fruitlessly with the various parameters you suggested I wondered whether my problem was related to the fact that I was using the same model as an action object in both actions. And sure enough when I made the second action with a renamed copy of the branch model, everything worked as you had shown and as I had expected in the first place. So I'll have to re-think my plan to populate a distant tree with only one branch model.

Thanks again.
