I have been trying to learn blender animation but I am vey frustrated. I have a NLA question. The Blue NLA CHANNEL STRIP seems to affect the upper channels even though…………. According to the BLENDER MANUAL
Tracks are the layering system of the NLA. At its most basic level, it can help organize strips. But it also layers motion much like an image editor layers pixels – the bottom layer first, to the top, last.
I have not found this to be the case. The bottom track seems to have an extreme effect on tracks above them. I don’t know if it is a malfunction of my install or maybe my understanding of this is function. I have included my blender file. Please see my screen shots.
