Animate body expression
on Apr 1, 2015 at 1:34:25 pm


I am facing some issues concerning animation of the body. I have drawn different arm movements in seperate frames in one composition.
This will be like
Movement A: 8 frames [frame 0-7]
Movement B: 6 frames [frame 8-13]
Movement C: 9 frames [frame 14-22]

I have put these frames after each other. 8-6-9 = 23 frames

I have built a slider to call a particular movement, for instance; if i want Movement B to be shown i put the slider from 8 to 13. As you can imagine with a lot of movement there will be a lot of keyframes or number that I have to type in..

Simply put, I just want to type in A, B, C or just type in the first number of the movement, whereafter it can continue play the frames that are being used(then I have to build seperate composition and call these compositions?)
It's not about being lazy (hehe), just to create a lot of more overview.

I am not very familiar with code and have spent some time finding a similar problem/solution but I couldn't find it.
Is there anyone here who knows how to create something like this?

Hope this clarifies my problem, if not, I will use screenshots or image to show you my problem.

Thanks in advance,

It can be a little complicated to set up, but you might take a look at this:
