View Full Version : copy animtions with graph editor

05-23-2010, 01:38 PM
Hey everyone,

If I was working on something like a walk cycle...

Could I use the graph editor to copy animations from the left side of the character's body to the right side?

Then just offset the frames to make it work out?

You could save out the motion file of your left side item and then apply it to your right side item. And then globally move/offset your right side's motion.

You can also save out each channel as it's own envelope.

This lscript could be helpful as well since you can copy/paste your motion directly in Layout.

Hey thanks again man.

I'll play around with the Lscript.

Generally I use IKBoost which can do this without even having to use the graph editor. You can copy, paste, save, load and mirror motions and poses easily. :)

edit: i guess IKB like Larry says is the easiest
