Walk recording does not seem to work for swapping of walk-modes…

…or am I missing out on s.th.?

When I tried to record a scene with a puppet with a walk behaviour, I could not record different walk modes.

This is what happened:

1.) I recorded a scene and used different walk modes on the recorded puppet.

2.) When I play that recorded scene only the last walk mode I had used would appear on the whole scene.

3.) Then I tried recording only one walk mode at a time.

4.) When I played the recording, though, again only the last walk mode I used would be shown.

Is this a bug or do I misunderstand the new behaviour.

In either case:

Is there a way to record (and FIX or CHANGE) different walk modes (i.e. walk, run, etc.) within a recording/a scene/a puppet's timeline?

(I imagine I could use the same puppet again and again for each walk mode but that is obviously not a very good solution…)

Thank you!

It's a little complicated but you'll need to arm and record "start" as well, and "keyboard input" if you're using the arrow keys. Without those, CH isn't sure when to start/switch.So here I recorded a start: immediately and style:walk, then two more takes with style:prance and style:run, and it worked.Not the most intuitive way to do things, agreed - but this should work.

From what I noticed under the "Walk " properties, you need to check if the recording button is active/armed (red). Otherwise if not active/armedstyle-armed.jpg, it records  nothing and on playback seems to just play whatever default setting you have whether its a run , walk ..etc. I am not sure if its what you were asking but I am sure Oksamurai will help.

I'm not sure.

Thing is, for example, once I HAVE already made a recording, when I play it back, the walk behaviour shows whatever mode is active then, not the one(s) that were while I was recording.

It seems an error to me, but I'm not sure, that's why I posted this here and not in the Bugfix dept. of the forum…

But it might have s.th. to do with my issue anyway, so thank you for that input!
