View Full Version : Rest rotation in LW 8.5, HELP!!!

02 February 2006, 10:00 AM
Hi all,

I'm following the online zombie tutorial from mr. Schultz ( I think ). I'm at the part of recording rest rotations of the bones. As I hit the default shift-R key, the readouts are suposed to jump to H 0, P 0, and B 0, but this doesn't happen.

My shift-R key is bound to set bone rest rotation. When I press this key, I get a window where I have to insert these three numbers. when I insert 0,0,0 manually, the bone stands in its original rotation, but my mesh ****s up really good. I enclosed a few Jpgs for easy aidment

Tanx a lot

I believe what you're looking for is "Record Bone Rest Position", and the shorcut key is "r" (no shift). Good luck.

I think what you want to do is record pivot point rotation. Tools > Pivot > Record pivot rotation. Be sure to set a keyframe after you do this for each and every bone in your character. See how that goes

It indeed did put the HPB to 0. But my mesh was all deformed again.

Now, the solution was, after I recorded the Pivot rotation, I instantly had to record the rest position. And bone by bone, my mesh came back in order so. I have the feeling the one can't work without the other.

Thanks for the reply
