Thanks for your reply.
I still can't seem to get the emotive to start at the beginning of a script. This is what I did...
I added a 90 second soundtrack to my model...then went to "stage" and clicked into the "new script" area of Character1's line. I then clicked on the Emotives tab and selected one (doesn't matter which). Then, when I click on the Timeline tab and play it, the Emotive only cuts in at the point shown in the screendump.
I'm probably doing something really stupid...but it doesn't matter what photo I use (though I've only ever tried the one soundtrack).
Any help would be much appreciated.
