I really didn't expect this to be such a struggle! I'm using AndyRig. I've tried moving the foot controller and messing about with the knee controller but I'm not having much luck. Thanks.

I run the play-blast and notice the animation look shaky while it moves on the path. Even after I do a full render the object motion don't look smooth. I even notice...
I have a horse walk cycle in place, but I want to animate him physically walking in a big circle without redoing each pose again. If I could just use the same walk cycle in place poses and grab and rotate the entire poses and place them in a circle path, the animation will work, but because of the...

I am currently working on the Intro to Maya 2014 course, but on lesson 63, I am having issues with the Editable Motion Trail. In the video, he moves the ship along the X axis after applying the motion trail, and the curve moves along with the ship. Mine, however, does not let the curve move at all....

Although the first blend Shape worked normally, the second one didn't , Why ?
I watched "Creating a Turntable Animation in Maya" and it worked perfectly as expected several times. But while doing something unrelated, Maya crashed. When I re-opened my project, the turntable camera no longer worked so I deleted it and tried the steps again.

I have a rather large project coming up where I will be animating many characters of diverse cultural backgrounds. I will be doing facial animation along with basic body motions.
To speed up the modeling process I will be using Daz to create the base geometry. Then bringing that model into Maya....
Hi guys! I've a strange behavior with my curves in the graph editor. As you can see in the attached picture, my curves have a kind of "stepped curve" behavior and I can't change it no matter how set the keys tangents. This behavior happens for each scene I open or if I try some test animation and...
Hi at all! I would want to ask here if its possible in Maya shorcuts for moving keys in the graph editor?

I press on the tool,...
