I get an error when I try to create a walk cycle using two action strip. The first is walk cycle in place and the second moving cycle from point A to point b. I could not understand why the NLA run only the top action ? When I put the walk cycle as the top, the person walks in place and when I put the moving cycle at the top the person moves from A to B without any motion walking!!! image1 image2

  • $\begingroup$ This should work: pasteall.org/blend/34671 could you upload your .blend have you changed other properties then repeat for the walkcycle? Or accidentally keyframed same bones in both actions? $\endgroup$ – stacker Feb 25 '15 at 18:01

You keyframed all bones in the movement action:

When you delete everything but the first (master) then it would work as expected.

The reason why couldn't see this is the checked show_only_errors option:

  • $\begingroup$ So, Why i should keyframe only the master when I move a person or it is principle of blender? $\endgroup$ – BetterEnglish Feb 26 '15 at 2:07

    $\begingroup$ @startingBlender because this is how it works, otherwise the instruction are contradictory and the last one wins. Like go left, no go right. $\endgroup$ – stacker Feb 26 '15 at 6:35
  • $\begingroup$ @startingBlender uploaded the fixed .blend. $\endgroup$ – stacker Feb 26 '15 at 7:44
  • $\begingroup$ I have had an amazing problem about IK and FK mode. Snap is used to copy the animation from IK to FK or from FK to IK. So, normally, When i do an animation using IK and FK mode, I can finally run it in each mode without loss for any motion. but in pasteall.org/blend/34672, I remark that when i run it in IK mode for all bones, the hands did not move. What is the problem? $\endgroup$ – BetterEnglish Feb 26 '15 at 15:07
  • $\begingroup$ @startingBlender You should post this as another question. $\endgroup$ – stacker Feb 26 '15 at 15:25
