Biped - Select All keys on a curve

Hello,
I have a motion capture but the biped is tilted to the rear.
I go in the track view to move the keys of the axis of the Bip node to straight it up.
So i see that in the track view there are 3 curves in the Bip001/Turning : Body.
I try to move some keys and it works the biped straighten up but i need to move all keys of only one curve and all the curves are on top of each other. It's difficult to do a box selection on them.

Is there a way to directly select all the keys of one curve ?

example i select a key of the curve i click on a button and all the keys of that curve is selected.

Thank you very much for your help.

you can fix the tilted issue with a new layer.

Have a look at biped's workbench
It's a powerful animation curve editing tool especially for biped
Needs some time to learn though ...

Hello guys,

Thank you very much for your replies.
In fact, i wrote a very simple script to animate an offset in rotation to straight up the biped.

For example to rotate the biped by 18 for each frame from 0 to 100
Code:
Animate on -- Like activate Auto-Key button for f = 0 to 100 do -- A loop from 0 to 100 ( sliderTime = f -- Move the Slider of the timeline to the current frame number rotate $Bip001 (angleaxis 18 [1,0,0]) -- Rotate the biped root ) Slidertime = 0 -- At the end of the for loop get the Slider back to zero Animate off -- Like deactivate Auto-Key button

Why you do not use layers inside biped for this task?

I try the layers (it's a great tool) but i have weird behavior from the feet. They move anormaly. Maybe i didn't use the layers tool correctly.

VeenibiZ, your script will not get proper results in many circumstances. And always ends up with keys in every frame, even when it's not needed.
At the end you will need to optimize your animation, and the only way will be the workbench.
Therefore, I encourage you to take advice from sapcefrom in first place.
