Cool, thx, Proton. I was just wondering, what about Follower nulls etc etc, would they be ex- and imported with a rig? A rig is more than just bones with targets and goals, usually.

Cool :)

Could 3rd party plugins be added? A lot of motion plugins, morphmixer, motion mixer could be in there too:) Though you might just do a 'replace with object' in that case and use the bone tools to pull the bones into the right positions in that case...


Also in the dopesheet, can you also copy and paste groups of keyframes to another object?

Cool. What about childnulls attached to bones? That would really be important for my rigs.

thx

How about something on the morph mixer that has been totally reworked???
Anything coming on the motion mixer?
Or how about something on the new lip-syncing plug-ins?

Motion Mixer- Bugs have been fixed but no major updates

Lip Sync- ???? Not sure what your talking about here...

Many thanks again Proton. Is it possible to add audio to that Bone avi that's missing the audio. I'm not that familiar with rigging so a lot of what's going on, just goes over my head.

AHH..OK Thanks Proton

So it must be keyed to LW as the ver I have is keyed to Poser.
Thought it might have made it into LW itself.

that is teh only demo that doesn't have audio...I plan to redo it with audio and I will be able to do it much faster with practice :)
