Now that you have a tweaked
animation for your zombie, you can apply it to your graveyard scene.
To apply the tweaked zombie shuffle
- Open the Reference Editor (
File > Reference Editor).
- Select any of the referenced zombies
in your scene.
- If the zombie is currently loaded as
its proxy, change it back to its original reference by right-clicking
it in the Reference Editor and selecting Proxy >
Reload Proxy as > Original.
- Select File > Assign Offline
- Navigate to the folder where you previously
stored the edit file and select armTweak1.ma, then click the Assign
Offline File button.
NoteIf you cannot find
the file, make sure the Files of type field
at the bottom of the file browser is set to Offline
A new entry appears in
the Reference Editor.
- Play the scene.
The zombie now shuffles
with the same alterations you made in the previous steps.
You can toggle between
the old default animation and your new tweaked animation by clicking
the checkbox next to the name armTweak1RN armTweak.mb in
the Reference Editor to load and
unload the reference edit. You can also apply the tweaked animation
to any or all of the other zombies using the same method above.
If you were so inclined,
you could also create additional shuffle variations and apply them
all to the same zombie, then use the checkboxes to quickly toggle
