I have 4 characters outside a car, all animated starting an frame 0.
The Director says “I want 3 seconds of heads to see them getting out of the car”
So in Maya we add the 3 seconds of animation in NEGATIVE frame range.
Now our frame range is -60 to 240.
The render service we are using CAN’T RENDER NEGATIVE frame ranges.
So how do i move ALL the animation GLOBALLY so that my frame range is 0 to 300?
Selecting all the individual controls and group moving them seams like a train wreck waiting to happen.
