Hi All:

I am learning to make character animation.
For the first time.
I have the humanoid model by Crestline (in lightwave 5.0 )
It includes a beautiful walk cycle.
I like it !!!
I decided to make my own walk cycle using the same model.
I used IK'ed goals for the legs and arms.
I made a good looking walk cycle, with only one flaw, the motion looks
good, but the feet seem like skating. So I had an idea. Load the original walk cycle,
position the viewport right where I want it, then make a preview of the scene.
Then load the original model, and use layout preview background option.
Basically, i Use the background in layout to show the preview of the walk cycle in the side viewport.
I can now use my model to position the feet right how I need it. Using the preview as a guide for
my feet. I am going to try and finish the walk cycle tomorrow.
I am very happy !!!

Have you tried using IK with goal objects?

The walk scene file has the humanoid model with IK goals for the feet.
