I've been looking for a tutorial that doesn't go into vast depth on the animation mixer or lip syncing etc but will just tell me, simply, how I can create a lattice with different shapes at different ends of the timeline, and then insert additional shapes between the two, and so forth.
I'm sure this should be really simple (as it was in Max, etc) but I keep getting hideously stuck.
Currently I have a lattice set up, keyed at the start and end of the timeline, and I've put one or two additonal shapes between them, yet in the animation mixer, when I open the compound animation clip, I have a purple (understood) and a black (not understood) transition, set up in a manner I can't seem to manipulate - despite having done the shape and mixer animation tutorials supplied with XSI.
I am (and will) trawl the manuals but if anyone could give me some help here I would really appreciate it. Stuck with deadline fast looming, etc
