action editor and pose modeI

I’m just starting with the action editor but can’t understand the basics behind it. I have a character with an armature. I use pose mode to move and rotate my character around by inserting key frames. After then, if I look into the action editor there’s nothing, no curves at all. On the other side, if I move my character in object mode (no pose mode) and insert key frames, then the action editor gets populated. Why?

I think you are confusing the IPO curve editor with the Action editor … In the Action editor you cannot directly see the IPO curves (you can see the keys for the various bones’ IPOs) …

If you want to see the IPO curves of your poses go to the IPO header and select Pose from the IPO curve types … most likely you have it set to Object right now …

Yes, thanks, you are right.
