Hi there, I'm trying to create a swap set that controls the all the parts of the main expressions like the eyebrows and mouth to make them Happy, Angry, Sad, ETC and than a few other swap sets that control the individual parts like puting a happy mouth on an angry face to make a devilish appearance. However instead what happens is I get two mouths on top of each other on the same rig. Am I missing somehting?
heres an example of my swap set setup
I notice your Left Eyebrow has a child called Right eyebrow, and vice versa. I generally do not recommend having more than one layer called the same name - behaviors could bind to the wrong one by accident.
What i suggest is make a slight change - Left Eyebrow has the different expressions like you have, but add a Default Eyebrow to match the trigger name in your swapset.
If you are seeing two eyebrows it's normally one of two things - something is not in the correct swapset, or it can be a tagging problem (if a layer is controlled by two things, one thing can take over from the other so only one works). That is why i am worried about the nested layer name - it might have taken over from the trigger and swapset. Either than or something is missing from the swapset
I'm having the same problem.
I'm trying to rig an "angry" expression with eyebrows, eyelids and a mouth. Do I need to rig a default expression for my expressions to change? At the moment, if I try to do trigger my angry expression "Angry" shows over the regular face.
Please help! What am I missing?
I fixed my problem!
I was trying to rig expressions but each expression was showing over the other.
You can use your layers in multiple expressions (so the same mouth can be used for a "sad" expression and a "mad" expression) but each expression has to be in the *same* swapset.
I'm guessing you have mouths in your expression swapset and your lipsync swapset? You'll need to move your lipsync settings into your expressions swapset so that you don't get the double mouths issue. 🙂
At least, that's what fixed my issue.
