Default Set Driven Key?

Hello all,

Does anybody know how to see the keys that SetDriven key creates in the graph editor?

You have to select the object/locator you used as the driver, not the actual animated object. For instance, I used attributes in a locator to drive the rotation of a leg on a mech warrior. I have to select the locator to see the keys. Also, if you try to move the keys in the Graph Editor, they will be contrained to the limits you set beforehand if you did set any.

Hi there,

Yes, select either the driver or driven (I think) and open Graph editor, usually at the bottom of the list of attributes.

Note. that you can add extra keys to the curve and also adjust the tangency of the handles for different effects.

another possiblity for procedural animation would be to use the trax editor (have effect (the clip/pose) the length of your scene eg. 200 frames) and use the weight of the clip/pose be/or drive several attributes. This is a common technique in softimage.
