Thanks for the comments. There are a lot of silly things that I left out, but you mentioned some I didn’t think of. I’ll try to add some more shape keys for his hands, and probably re-do the ones I have. I can’t quite get a grasp on them yet.
With shape keys, when you enter edit mode are you editing the shape key you select before entering, or is it always the basis shape?
He is hitting a high hat, and there is a high hat part. (most of it is your basic rock: tit-tit-tit-tit-tit-Sss-tit-tit, but there is some other rhythms as well like a three feel: tit-sss-tit-tit-sss-tit-tit-sss. I should probably animate the open and close on that as well so you can key into the sounds better instead of just animating when he hits the hat.) the drums that are missing from the geckos kit that are heard in the song are the toms, and snare.
I’m guessing there aren’t many replies because not everyone has divx avi codec.
