I have Shift-D a stripe in the NLA-editor and grab it several frames to the right.
Now I realized that these two stripes are linked… So when editing one of them the other one is also edited.
Is it possible to unlink them ?
There have been some changes here for 2.71 (see http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/Release_Notes/2.71/Animation#Tools)
- The old Shift-D behaviour you mention here has been moved to Alt-D. Shift-D in 2.71 should create new actions which aren’t related to the old ones anymore
- There’s a new “make local” operator (UKEY) which can be used to make sure that a strip is the only one which uses a particular action (the other strips get new copies)
In older versions, trying to do this was admittedly very difficult (actually, it was close to impossible via the UI; it might have still been possible via Python though)
it did look like a Alt-D indeed. So I will downlooad 2.71 (was using 2.70) and will have to delete the duplicated stripe and redo it independently.
Some more about this.
Using 2.71 it still seems that Shif-D is a lot like Alt-D for stripes. But when selecting the stripe to unlink and press ‘U’ then you can make it ‘single user’.
Hope this help
