    Front/Back Arm Swapping Help

    adrianw23797083

      Does anyone have any other tricks for this besides the one noted by Okay Samurai in the July 2017 Character Animator Tips & Tricks video???

       

      How are you supposed to handle 2 arms with that example? I tried creating an animated arm frame cycle in front of the head, but I can't figure out how to hide the draggable arm when I trigger the sequence!

       

      Please help!

          Whenever "hide others in group" is checked, anything else in that group will disappear - including other layers and groups. So if you want a cycle layers arm animation to hide a draggable arm, you would need a draggable arm and a cycle layers group in the same parent group. Make one your default without any triggers or checks, and the other with a key and hide others checked.

           

          In general though we rarely see this kind of thing - most people pick front or back arms, and then draggable or cycle layers as a stylistic choice.
