Poser Mixer Setup
Added on: Sat Jan 18 2003
Page: 2 3 

I will show how to leverage the new weight curves in Motion Mixer 2.0 to create a pose slider set. This tutorial assumes you know the basics of both LW 7.5 sliders and motion mixer 2.0 actors.

NOTE: Save often with incremented file names ie: posemixer_tut_001.lwo, posemixer_tut_014.lws. This may save you some time if you do a step incorrectly.


Open Layout and get some content to use for your pose mixing. It can be as simple as a null with three bones or as complex as a hand. I'll be using a hand because it looks cooler than a null with three bones. Disclaimer: I didnt model this hand, I just put bones in it. Travis B did the modeling.


Select everything that is going to be in your actor. Open Motion mixer, create an actor and name it somthing appropriate.


Click create motion. Name it somthing useful (open makes sense for what pose my hand is currently in) and set the end frame to somthing that is far longer than your animation will actually be. This is becasue we want to be able to use these poses for the whole animation and we cannot scale them later.
