How do you mean straight? In curve editor? just take linear on the Zcurve. or do you mean were the legs are going? then the foot controller must have Z axis as local axis to make it work.

thnks Erik.
I mean Z curve of pelvis controller in graph Editor. But if I try to keep it straight then I can't set key poses on required spacing. As I heard we should keep Z curve straight in walk or Run.

Ah the pelvis. Yeah i was doing a run yesterday and it was really hard to keep stuff straight. I think its more important to keep it straight in a walk than a run though, you notice the problems more then. If it looks good, it is good. You'll figure something out, i hope :)

i say don't worry about it. if the run looks good then why worry about whether or not the z curve is all straight in the graph editer? if a certain technique hinders your workflow then i think you should ditch it...as long as it works and looks good, that's all that should really matter.
