Hello there
On my old (XP) machine I used to be able to get a character to hold their pose by hitting the spacebar (and stopping recording) when they were in the pose i wanted and then recording again until I wanted a different pose.
I know other people have achieved this by selecting an "idle" pose rather than stopping the recording and then moving the "clips" on the timeline.
However on my new (W7) machine (and I don't know whether this is relevant) I cannot get either solution to work anymore. In both situations the character fails to hold their pose.
Am I doing something wrong or has any else experienced this with W7?
Thank you.

The "idle trick" works more for controlling the length of time of a movement so you can cut it short if you want. I've never found anything that allows a character to hold the pose, although it would be nice.

Just for fun I just tried the stop recording trick and it didn't work for me. The character froze when I stopped recording but resumed the movement when I started again.

Thanks Danimal
I'll have to try again on my XP machine - I'm sure i wasn't imagining it!

I'm sure you weren't must have been something different in the machine. I was actually hoping it would work on mine as it would be a valuable feature!

I wouldn't be too sure (!) - I'll experiment tonight and report back tomorrow
