I have a Cowboy character and I want him to be able to raise both his guns/arms in the air and fire them simultaneously. I want to record this action and make it a trigger.
Is it possible to raise both arms with the same mouse click using draggables ?
(I'm having such fun with this program
In the new 2019 version just released, have a look at the tutorial on “replays” linked from Character Animator Tutorial Videos . You can set up a scene for shooting both guns, then record that as a reply so you can click a single button and have it do the shoot sequence.
You can record the take for one arm, then go back and record the take for the second arm - just drag the playhead back and record a second one. There is a little example in this video: Project Wookie, Episode 3: Recording a First Scene - YouTube - if you don’t want to watch it all, skip to 4:30 in (but video has a few different tips like renaming your draggers).
You can also do clever things like if you *always* want to move the draggers together, you can put an invisible rectangle to join the two arms and put a dragger on that. But “replays” sound more like what you want. Then you can shoot alternating hands for example.
Thanks I will go with the Recording option !
Can you describre a bit more what you mean by invisible rectangle ? (in wich layer group do you put it etc)
Thank you !
Is there an other way, such as a dragger handle that can move other dragger handles ?
