Thread: Complex Question?

  1. #1

    Complex Question?

    How do I take 5 lightwave scenes and merge them into one?

    In other words I have 5 scenes - each are 100 frames.

    I want to sequence all these frames to make one scene that is 500 frames long.

    The only other thing that may make this more complex is that I have an object that is constantly moving through all 5 scenes and I want to keep the motion smooth between the 5 shots.

    Can you please help me?

    Thanks

    You could use motion Mixer, Select all your animated objects and put them into an Actor. Then make the animation into a Motion, and save this out to a .hmot file. Do this with the other scenes, and in the last, load each of the scenes .hmot file in. Motion Mixer should map the objects to their animations in the Motion, and you should be able to add each of the Motions on the end of your animations. The you should be able to tweak the motions to link up.
    Push the software, don't let it push YOU!

    Ah crap - I cannot open motion mixer because I cannot find it. Th manual says it is under the window menu but I cannot see it.

    Anyone know where they moved it on LW 8.3?

    Edit Menu Layout -> Search -> MotionMixer -> Enter -> Choose your favourite Menu Tab and place it where you'll be able to find it again.

    If you don't want to do that...it's hiding under Master Plugins...
