What you lot require for this tutorial:

In this tutorial i volition demo how you lot create a rattling basic grapheme animation for GTA IV [TUT] IV Custom Anims from get-go measuring to concluding step

Now the thought is move/rotate the Bones to seat in addition to brand the animation keys. First let's enable the AutoKey option, this volition brand that each modify nosotros made inwards determined fourth dimension lapse volition generate a animation cardinal for that bone(s) inwards that fourth dimension position, this is what makes movements happen:

*It should perish Red when enabled.

Now let's nation that i desire brand the ped perform a brusque leg movement, what nosotros require to practise basically is gear upwardly Keys inwards the animation for each measuring of the move.

First of all i volition gear upwardly the initial Key that volition define where each os should start inwards the animation, to practise this i volition seat the Time Slider inwards get-go frame in addition to thence Move the bones that i innovation to animate to generate a cardinal for them, inwards this example i volition pick out this os (Char_R_Calf):

For each measuring i volition accept a Key inwards the animation, so, allow me seat the fourth dimension slider command inwards a fourth dimension seat where i imagine that is adept plenty for the get-go measuring that is displace the leg up, the frame fifteen seems adept for this move:

Now if you lot displace the Time Slider from frame 0 to fifteen you lot should encounter the movement.

Based on this thought of animation cardinal frames in addition to bones position/rotation nosotros tin halt create unopen to cool anims.

3 - Exporting the Biped anim in addition to importing into a "gta iv exportable" project

To export a animation made amongst a Biped nosotros practise the following:

3.1.1 - In the principal carte icon click inwards Export:

3.1.2 - Select a folder in addition to gear upwardly a advert for the exported file:

Tip: In this same window you lot tin halt increase/decrease the publish of frames of the entire anim (Length), you lot also tin halt re-scale the fourth dimension making the anim play faster or slower (Re-scale Time).

Tip: You tin halt create/edit keyframes inwards this projection too, but follow same thought of setting fourth dimension slider seat in addition to rotating bones (don't displace them amongst Move tool because it volition generate "not good" results ^^).

4 - Exporting the anim to openFormats (OpenIV)
