Hi,

Im wondering if anyone has a good tip on how to offset several animations.

I cant use Scene Editor because some of the animations are done with Motion Mixer, while others are animated traditionally and therefor requires bazillions items to be offset manually.

Is there any good workaround?

Thanks,

Now... I think you can acutally use Motion Mixer to off-set the animations.

Also, a GREAT Tool is KeyTrack... that will allow resequencing of keyframes from each animation, allowing subtle shifting of pace and events. Also, drag, select all and move to you hearts content!

I think he's referring to KeyPro by Cinegraphics...

There's a demo to download - Looks interesting...

Yes... KeyPro looks nice.


But... KeyTrack is only $99.

this sort of stuff should be built into LW anyway, IMO the whole animation / motion control needs a BIG update

I agree.

I would love to see timelines like in most compositing programs (ie. Combustion).

Actually.. im beginning to love Motion Mixer - it should be fully integrated with LW.
