Hi,

I'm working with AMV14c

I can't seem to be able to create a pose (off/on or percentage) to had a bone!?

I've done this before but now 'j' won't hid the bone and if I expand the properties and select the bone and click on the 'eye' it won't turn off!!?!!

Any one have any ideas????

Thanks,
Rusty

You have to turn the bone off in the temporary Action that appears while you are making the pose. Are you doing that?

Yep. Whenever you're working in a pose, all your work's in that temporary action. Anyway, before posting I searched and saw your comment about sometimes needing to use a percentage pose and even tried that (although I've always used off/on poses for this before. I checked to see if maybe I had somehow placed a conflicting pose holding it on visible but no. It maybe that I needed to exit AM and restart it, have to try again. Or, many be it's AM V14 or... AMV14 on windows7.

Thanks,
Rusty

More...

I saw that I already had a Show Fingers pose in another folder and it worked.
Also, I saw that my pose that would not work was Hide Hands (now Show Hands).
I removed both non-working poses.
I recreated Show Hands pose and it worked... until I moved it to the folder it was suppose to go in then it stopped working.

I've had another thought... perhaps I don't have a duplicate pose tripping it up but rather have 'show bones' set in another pose

Back to it.

I found it... in fact I found it with the filters which I've used extensively for years. Another pose was overriding mine. I'll still look at the tut--can always learn something new!

Thanks!

I just found this post from a search. Since it's archived, I'm guessing no one will find it. However ... I'm glad the 'j' key works, but why isn't the bone's "hidden" attribute in the properties box?

I wondered that too. Technically, it is there... it's the eyeball icon.

You need to "Show more than drivers" to see the "Bones" folder in the chor (which is a bit different than the "Bones" folder in the Actions folder in the chor) and select it there to alter its eyeball setting.

Here, Bone1 is "hidden" but partially visible while it is selected:

Muchas gracias, Roberto, good info!

Aah, I see, for a relationship you have to look at the hierarchy under the Action folder hierarchy to find the "show more than drivers" icon. I sometimes confuse myself by looking instead under the "User Properties Relationships" folder where (obviously) I can't find what I'm looking for. Doh!

For a pose ( user property) , edit the pose, then go to the temporary action that exists while that pose is being edited. There you can this maneuver also do.
