Previously it was so easy to make animations by setting a key frame pose then another,further along the time line and letting Iclone auto blend between the two. Often when I did this I didn`t even have to open the time line window , just scrol a little along the play bar and open the edit motion window.

The method is described here in the IC8 on-line manual.

https://manual.reallusion.com/iClone-8/Content/ENU/8.0/50-Animation/Motion-Layer/Producing_a_Custom_Pose_or_Key_frame_Motions.htm?Highlight=pose%20animation

Currently in IC8.02 it is not possible because If I create a pose then add another, you have to blend between the "poses" for yourself.


See this thread in the feedback tracker which says the fix is now released. Really ?

.https://www.reallusion.com/FeedBackTracker/Issue/timeline-motion-layer-keyframing-not-working-properly/1/key%20frame

 I am really struggling to do this blending myself. I don`t seem to be able to drag anything betwwen the edit points to make it happen.

What am I missing ? Apart from the way it used to work.Crazy

Geoff.

Hi Geoff,
I'm not sure if I understand the problem correctly. Have you activated the Auto Extend Button in the timeline, see manual https://manual.reallusion.com/iClone-8/Content/ENU/8.0/51-Animation-Timeline-Editing/Timeline-Operation-Basic.htm ? It' s button no. 10. This should produce the clip between two or more keyframes.
Jürgen.

Thank you very much for your helpful response Lordhi.
Updated to IC8.02 early this morning following which I tried out the Key frame edit function with little success.
Since then I have restarted my computer and reloaded Iclone 8.02

I now realize I was not getting an auto marker when I tried earlier today.. By setting a marker each time I edit the pose and using your suggestion I can now get it working to my satisfaction.
Now find it adds a default motion in the time line, which I can extend at will. I`m as confident as I can be that I wasn`t getting that before. Can also apply transition warps etc. to this.

I feel sure the process is not as simple/auto as it was but thankfully I can now make it work for me.
Your help with this has been very much appreciated.

Geoff.
