View Full Version : turn off keys for object/bone..

10 October 2003, 02:38 PM
Does anyone know of a script or how-to for max 4 to basically turn off keys for an object, like the one in softimage. So basically e.g you animate all the body then you want to animate the face. So you can turn off all the body animation work on the face then turn it back on again.

Maybe its a matter of making a script that, copies the keys of an object x,y,z(tangents also) Then makes a key at its current frame and deletes everything else. Then when you want it back again it copies the keys back on..

But really i want to just turn them off, when i need to.

It would be simple enough to swap out controllers - one with the keys, one without. I'm not sure if this would have any nasty side effects, though. You can certainly give it a try!
