I was looking for some 'sit' animations. Found 'Hands on chin' and 'Hands clasped' under 'Themes-Boardroom'. They play in preview mode, but when I switch to direct the button is grayed and I cannot use
the to play and add to the timeline. Other animations work.
Are the more animations where a character 'sits' or 'lies down' that work.
I need to make a converstion sceen with people sitting in chairs. Any solution for that?
Tnx a lot for help.

Mach,

I'm pretty sure your character needs to be seated already to use these.
Prepare the character and select "sit" as the initial position (or get them to sit down as a instruction as part of you animation).

Just checked - Yes, that's it.

There's basically two problems here...

1) Most of the animations have both sit and stand versions, but a few are missing one of them. In those cases, the animation is disabled in the "direct animation" dialog box. It can be previewed, but it temporarily makes the character sit / stand.

2) Muvizu doesn't explain WHY the animation is disabled, making it a bit confusing.

We're addressing both these problems in a future update...

Firstly the animations will be smarter so e.g. if you're sitting and you play a stand-only animation, it will just play the animation from the waist up. Secondly in the rare instance of an animation that can't be played, Muvizu will try do a better job of explaining why.

I hope this helps.
