Re: How to Move All Keyframes and Channels?

Personally, I don't use or recommend using the Sequencer until doing compositing or final edit tasks. Similar to using layer transforms, where I refrain from using them until absolutely necessary. I think the problem was that it still leaves frame 0 at 0. So, if I had something starting at 0 and go...

Re: How to Move All Keyframes and Channels?

I came up with a solution to the particles not looking right if I shifted them. I still didn't figure out how to fix it, but I solved the problem by pre-rendering the particles, and then importing the AVI file and compositing it over the other part. I used Lagarith codec, with RGBA turned on, so the...

Re: How to Move All Keyframes and Channels?

I am in a similar situation. My client wants everything to happen in about half the time. I used Scale All Keyframes entire document, but some things didn't scale correctly. The scene has a particle layer, and the particles have movement, and they fade away after a time. I had been noticing that odd...

Re: Move a head turn from Mainline to Smartbone?

I don't think version 9 had copy/paste keyframes, aside from same layer/same timeline. You'll need to right-click the mainline in the action window and insert a copy into an active action timeline. Thanks! I didn't know about that. I was beginning to think I'd have to edit the file in a text editor...

Intro title to the Velveteen Lounge Kitsch-en

Here is my finished animation for the intro title to the Velveteen Lounge Kitsch-en, with Glendora substituting. Glendora magically pours herself a glass of wine and drinks it all up.

Re: Move a head turn from Mainline to Smartbone?

You're probably not doing this but I just want to be certain we cover everything: when copy/pasting, be sure to use the Copy/Paste commands (Ctrl C/V) and not the Copy Layer/Paste Layer command. The latter set copies the currently selected layer or group, not keys. I am using version 9 for Windows ...

Re: Move a head turn from Mainline to Smartbone?

[quote="Greenlaw"]You're right, it happens all the time, but you should be able to copy the keys in the Mainline, open the Action, and then paste the keys there./quote] It should be that easy, right? But it isn't. I just did a test of that. I got very unexpected results. Here it is: https://drive.go...

Re: Move a head turn from Mainline to Smartbone?

I feel like there has to be a solution to this, because I'm sure it happens all the time. I could save a copy of my animation and delete all other keyframes. Would that help? I'm not sure what I did wrong. I thought sure I was operating on the smart bone timeline. The smart bone was highlighted. I c...

Move a head turn from Mainline to Smartbone?

I started creating a head turn smart bone action. I created a bone, named it, made a new smart bone action, which I thought I was in when I started pushing points around to create the head turn action, then I clicked on the bone layer, and poof, all my work disappeared. I only thought I was in the s...

Re: Making wine stay level in glass automatically

Also, I did something when I created the wine box that I can't figure out. It's sort of in perspective, and it changes with the camera zoom and pan. I know I selected something, but I can't remember what. It's like it's in 3D space you might like to check the z coordinates in the group / vector lay...

Re: Making wine stay level in glass automatically

Here's Glendora magically pouring a glass of wine, then drinking it up. https://youtu.be/q2JA1ySFW_0 It took some work to get it all working together. I still have problems occasionally with the dynamic bones, extreme wobbling, not working. Usually it all renders correctly though. But one time tonig...

Re: Making wine stay level in glass automatically

Here is my latest work, wine pouring into a glass. Not perfect, but not too bad I think.
