Re: making smartbones makes my character vanish in action pa

Well, what do you know--after a bit of randomly clicking around on layers, the keyframes finally became visible on the timeline and I was able to delete them. Unfortunately, they won't stay deleted--I can delete the keyframes from one layer, and then I move to the next one to delete those keyframes,...

Re: making smartbones makes my character vanish in action pa

I finally got to check this. I zoomed out as far as I can go, slipped the top most Sequencer layer and it appears that there are negative keyframes on those items (I'm assuming the thin black line indicates the key frame.) However, when I look for the keys under Channels, there is nothing there. Cle...

Re: making smartbones makes my character vanish in action pa

Thanks for the tip. I actually checked that a few days ago and did find negative keys (even made a post about it in another thread.) I went through every layer multiple times and I'm almost certain I got rid of them all--at least I no longer see any indicator that there exist keys on the problem vec...

Re: making smartbones makes my character vanish in action pa

Whoops! Spoke too soon. I worked with the scene a little this morning and once again certain layers were vanishing when creating an Action, a Morph in this case. Curiously, creating a SmartBone works fine. Also, no Groups are involved in this version of the scene. Since it's always the same layers t...

Re: Use Selected Bones for Flexi-Binding Command

Oh, nevermind--figured it out. I needed to select both layers at once before selecting the command. It's all good now. :mrgreen:

Use Selected Bones for Flexi-Binding Command

I started using the Use Selected Bones for Flexi-Binding command tonight and it's really helping me simplify my rigs. I do have a question about it for more experienced users. It appears that when I use this feature, I can only bind a single layer to the selected bones--is this correct? The problem ...

Re: making smartbones makes my character vanish in action pa

Just a quick followup to my situation: thanks to this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJ4j51P0uWA), I gained a much better understanding of Flexi-Binding and the Use Selected Bones For Flexi-Binding command. The latter feature helped me simplify the rig quite a bit, and as a result, I'm not se...

Re: making smartbones makes my character vanish in action pa

Okay, I spent a little more time on this tonight (just can't leave well enough alone I guess.) I'm not 100% sure but some of my issues maybe be related to how I'm using (or rather mis-using) bone layers. I've been experimenting with Flexi Binding vs. Region Binding, and Group Layer binding vs Layer ...

Re: making smartbones makes my character vanish in action pa

Thanks for looking into this! I'll keep your observations in mind when I come back to this problem. It sounds like it's an official bug since others can reproduce the problem. BTW, I removed the Group from the scene and reconfigured the rig to work without it. I still get the disappearing graphics b...

Re: making smartbones makes my character vanish in action pa

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I've only started using Group layers for the last few shots in our project, which was when I noticed this issue, so maybe there's something to that. Though, like you, I'm almost certain I've seen this in a version of the scene without the Group too. My guess is that usi...

Re: making smartbones makes my character vanish in action pa

In my case, I'm working strictly in 9.5. Here's some new info: Even though my problem described was specific to using SmartBones, now I find that the same issue happens in this scene when creating any Action. For example, I want to create a series of Morph Actions for a Group layer in this scene, an...

Re: making smartbones makes my character vanish in action pa

I'm having this problem too. Curiously, it only happens in certain scene files and I can't figure out why. Anyway, to make the artwork appear, I have to touch the rotate bone tool slightly. I'm not sure this works all the time though...I think I ran into a case earlier where I couldn't make the imag...

Re: Best Affordable Microphone

I noticed the H2 has apparently been replaced by the H2n, which according to reviews has a much better recorder/mic. Also, it seems a bit cheaper on Amazon right now too. I've had my old H2 for several years now--it still works well but after reading the reviews, hmm, maybe it's time to upgrade? Nah...

Re: Best Affordable Microphone

I have an older model H2, which is not just a microphone but is actually a self-contained portable recorder. Here's the link for the latest model: http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/products/h2/ What's nice about the H2 is that you can record anywhere with it and the audio quality is great. I take it wit...

Re: Bug Check: SmartBone Display Issue

Still don't know about the weird display error but I think I found an explanation for some of the other weirdness I was running into--probably mostly user error. I'm finding that some elements have old SmartBone and other Action data attached. Stripping them out seems to help when creating new Smart...
