Need a walkthrough on some basics.
« on: February 07, 2012, 04:19:42 pm »

Taken a long hiatus and have forgotten most of what I learned.

So for starters......

I have a model that is boned, skinned and animated.
I have almost the perfect camera angle (using a modified ortho view) and perfect lighting. (will address this in a different post)
I have added textures. (will address this in a different post)
All is well for the most part. I export 32 frames and select 8, rotate figure 45 degrees, repeat.
So now I have that figure walking. So far so good.
Now I go back and create a new sequence of my figure just standing (1 frame)
I import the figure/sequence into the scene and get rid of the the old figure/sequence.
Issue is that the new sequence looks nothing like the Sequence I made......
What steps am I doing wrong.
I could start from scratch but:
a) I don't know how to determine the size of my figure in the original and match it in the new version
b) I don't know how to determine my view setup since it is a modified ortho view.

did you import the figure to the scene mode? you might of imported the object into the scene instead of the figure.

(pictures always help ☺)
