View Full Version : Expression Help Please

02-26-2002, 08:14 PM

I am needing to figure out a fairly basic (?) expression in order to tie the pitch of a jawbone to the amplitude of a .wav file. I have a fairly clear idea of how the expression will work, but I cannot find a listing in the graph editor for the .wav once it is loaded into LW Can anyone help? I am using Lightwave 7.0b on Win2K

Mega-Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me solve this.

Maybe this link will provide an answer to you.


Download the scenes and objects zip file as it also has a few wave files that can come in handy.

Chewey, that looks like EXACTLY what I am looking for.

Thanks a million!

I don't really think you need a expression.
Go to 'Graph Editor', select the bone 'Pitch' channel, go to modifier tab, in 'Modifier' pop up menu, choose audio channel, load your *.Wav file, that's it, your bone 'Pitch Channel', will follow the Wav amplitude.

Even better, I'll try both and see which one gives us the best effect.


Cheers again.
