I plan on having 8 hand sets. Example: thumbs up, thumbs down both for Left and Right arms.
If I leave the arms down in the A position. When I attach each hand in must be in a new layer?
But can the arms stay in there original layer?
I plan on using keystrokes for the arm gestures. Example: 1 for two arms up, with thumbs up.
2 for arms up with both thumbs down. Is this on the right track?
Here's how I set up a recent character:
So I added keyboard triggers with hide siblings checked for each hand state. Each has flipped variations for when the arm is bent/facing a certain way.
If you wanted the whole arms to move from key triggers too, then yes, you would need to include them in the group as well. Basically, anything you put in a group can be swapped out with anything at the same hierarchy level if you wanted to.
