hi guys again i have another question , i am making a video where the characters stay all the 5mn video in the chair , when i try to vary the character actions i notice that when i put "scratch arm" in character actions the character stands then sits back, the same for picking the telephone. is there an optionto make him do these actions sitten?

how can i put that the character stays handing the telephone like he is speaking a while , doing a meditation for 20 seconds ?

thanks for been here

Some animations are performed while sitting and others are standing animations. It would be great if all upper body animations could performed in both poses, but alas at the mo this is not the case.

On a couple of occasions I have worked round this problem by having the character remain in the standing position and by raising the seat/car etc.(sometimes it's the character that has to be raised or lowered using the floating ground plane method!) you can make it appear that the character is sitting in the camera view. This allows you to use the standing animations which I have found to be more extensive and useful especially when it comes to dialogue.

In this video I used this method for the fire engine (method shown at 6:38 if you can't be bothered watching it all)


Hope this helps
Cheers
