Offset selection of Keys in Dope sheet/Curve Editor
show user profile  MONOLITH02
I have a walk cycle for a biped. Nothing fancy, just nice and simple. What I want to do is take all the vertical Keys for the COM of the biped and offset them by 20 in the Z-Axis. As it stands there are undulations in the COM as the biped walks (as to be expected), I want to keep the undulations but add 20 to all the keys in the COM's Vertical track. Any help would be great. In essence making the Biped walk at +20 rather than 0.8 where it is now.

Well you can either just move it up with the Move tool with autokey not on, or just move all the keys up in the Curve Editor.

Ah yes, that would work thanks. I should have remembered that. Cheers for the help. One problem now is though, for some reason the keys display in the dope sheet but not in the curve editor. Any ideas?

Interesting, I haven't used the biped for ages and it seems those keys doen't appear anywhere obvious in the curve editor. And it seems my other method doesn't work at all.

In that case you could parent the COM to a dummy and move that up.

I did try linking it to a dummy but it seemed to snap back again to its original position when the timeline was scrubbed. Probably due to the fact that the COM already had keys for its vertical track. I managed to figure it out though. Just had to turn the body vertical track selection on. Here:

Thanks for the help none the less though.
