Home ? How Do I ...? ? Sitting to standing and idle guitar

Hi,

I created a character with an acoustic guitar. When I set him to idle guitar it looks like he's strumming. To work around that problem, I thought I'd start him as sitting, then get him to stand up when it was time to play. However, I can't seem to make him go from sitting to standing during the animation.

So, I have two questions:

1. Is changing a character's position from sitting to standing possible when directing?

2. Is the idle guitar animation supposed to look like he's strumming?

Thanks in advance.

I dont know if this breaks the guitar animation but its possible to have a character move from sitting to standing or visa versa in muvizu

you set up the animation menu that pad and there is an option to add the sit and stand default positions to the pad so you can select them during running the animation portion

The guitar animations only work in the standing position and the keyboard and drums animations only work in the seated.

Incidentally, If you wish your character to have a blank expression whilst standing then select keyboard idle and alternatively if you wish them to have a blank expression whilst seated then select the guitar idle.

Very handy little trick that one!

The "idle keyboard for idle guitarist" is a great tip. Thanks!

For some reason I have missed this, thanks. Could have done with it 24 hours ago before finishing "Silvery Moon". It will come in very handy in the future.
