Hi, I try to figure out how a character can carry a placard or sign in his/her hand upwards while walking or standing. I have tried various actions, but I didn't find any suitable (like a demonstration or marching). Anyone knows? Thanks

It is ironic that they have signs as attachments, but no action to wave or use them without them clipping straight through the character. I'd recommend you get a hold of my arms here http://www.muvizu.com/forum/topic5734-tips--tricks.aspx and attach your own sign to one, then attach that to a character's attachment slot.

Hi ziggy72, thanks for your help. It is ironic that they don't have any action for the attachments like a placard or sign. It would seem logical and common sense to have it, but logic and common sense are not so common these days . It would be much more appreciated by Muvizu community to have solved these hiccups, than adding extra features like 360 deg. camera or VR features. More action elements and working UV Maps for existing characters would be better choice. Thanks for your input.

The newer characters (like Beefy) can "turn off" the top, legs and hands. This makes it possible to replace any of these body parts with an attachment.

If you have the base character models, you can copy Beefy's midsection and reshape it into his torso and arms holding a sign. Then save it as FBX and attach it to his BACK slot. Next, turn off Beefy's TOP and LEFT HAND and RIGHT HAND

You'll end up with something like this (but with a little modelling the static part can be anything you want.

base character models are found here:

The nice thing about this approach is that the midsection is frozen, and it won't do anything unexpected that leads to clipping... but the rest of Beefy works as usual.
