Help with bone axis in sequence mode
« on: May 04, 2008, 07:30:58 am »

Ok i am having a slight problem in sequence mode!
I have skined the model to bones and that all works fine and i have set axis but what i cant get my head around is that when i rotate the bone across the Z axis the X axis does not rotate making it impossible to move the arm back and forth for a walk cycle!
Any help would be aprecciated pictures below!
Thanks in advance!

You can move the different axis with the different mouse keys. Click on the bone you want to move and lock/unlock the axis. Then ones locked cant be moved around, the ones unlocked can. So if you want to move you bone around the X-axis, click on the bone and lock the Y,Z-axis and unlock the X-axis.
