View Full Version : Maya Character Animation

09 September 2004, 07:14 AM
Hello all,
I just installed Maya 5 and have begun to poke around a bit. I have a question regarding character animation.

I got a hold of a fully rigged model from and was wondering if you could animate him by just selecting the limb you want to move and pose it, instead of animating code style. For example, I've been playing with Animation Master for a while now, and the way that program animates is just by clicking on a certain bone and posing it where you want and then go to the next keyframe, etc. Can you do that in Maya.

Reason I ask is cause I've been trying to pose the guy, but I can't figure it out...I've tried clicking on the bones, but they don't move. Any info would be great.

I didn't realize I had to do that.
