Hi

 

Just a question in general. I've seen one or two moviestorms where a person took a step backward. How is that done? Thanks.

Proceed as follows:

  1. Create a walking sequence as usual -if backwards, it's advisable to use short displacements :) -, by using the 'Move here' action as usual.
  2. Then, in the time line select the bar representing the walking action, right-click and choose 'Customize walk'.
  3. Select the 'Gait' label and then, in the dropdown list choose 'Walk backwards'
  4. Finally, you'll need to change the orientation of the destination walking mark, by selecting it while you keep pressed the Ctrl key and then rotating it. Failing to do so, the puppet will walk backwards all the time and then will quickly turn 180º around.

 

Hope it helps.

Sorry to hear that. It is a good movie tho. Were you able to watch it online????

He used some awesome effects. I did of course see how to use walking backwards, from the customize walk. Thanks to jam. :)

No, sadly I tried to watch online and gave up so tried to download and gave up as well. It is an issue when creating longer movies and not compressing them, you often inadvertently cut out part of your potential audience.

Glad you got a solution though ;)
