I think I know what you want to do. I remember having a similar problem when I was making my first walk cycle. I wanted the follow-through of the arm and wrist to occur after the main action, and was wondering how it could fit within the walkcycle range.
A few points to clarify first:
- I mirrored the first key in order to get the flip pose.
- I copied an exact duplicate of the first key to the last frame.Therefore:
- First and last frame were identical.If I remember correctly this is what I did. The flip pose is easy. You can stagger the follow-through action a few frames after as usual. As for the first and last keys which are essentially the same (remember only one gets shown) place the follow-through for the last key just before the first key. Here is a diagram of what I mean.
/key1 # # -------------------- key2 # # -------------------- key3/
/ = start and end of walk-cycle
= follow through keys
This may not have been the best method but it seemed to do the trick for me. It’s a little bit of a mind bender at first, but just remember anything that would normally follow the last key, goes instead after the first key.
Hopefully I understood your question correctly :). Let me know if I didn’t, or if something is not clear in my explanation. good luck!
