Im just learning this side of animation and I would be grateful if someone could give me some advice abou using actions to build an animation.
Ive a number of poses which I have keyframed and I’ve turned these into a number of actions. I can move these around and stack these in the NLA and im figuring out slowly how to blend these. My main question is this - if I have say three NLA tracks with actions on them which I have blended together to give one overall animation is there anyway I can merge these three actions into one actions which takes account of how I have blended the other actions? I though maybe metastrips were for this purpose but when I selected all my actions on the different strips and created a metastrip it simply seemed to turn each action into its own metastrip rather than condensing them down ot one action strip.
Is there some way to do this or am I missing something about how the NLA is used? It seems an obvious step to turn blended together actions into one action.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
