I am using microstation v8i ss4. I have created keyframes for animating (making the man model walk). After setting the keyframes for movement of hands and legs, when I am defining the Actor path and orientation it is showing the following error. Can anybody help me out?
Are your keyframed scripted already?
It seems like... then you actually asking mstn to place geometry in two different places at the same time. Therefore you get an error message.
Try to come up with different ideas how to animate your figure. Actually you would need dynamic animation,through formulas and relevant positioning.
Have you created actors for that parts that you have keyframed?
Make a dummy actor this could be just a circle using construction element. Attach the circle to path you want the model to follow then attach the model to the circle that is following the path.
You would need to have parts attached to create a hierarchy for example foot to lower leg, lower leg to upper leg, upper leg to torso...the torso would be attached to the dummy actor on the path.
I created a hierarchy of body parts attached to the main actor and its working fine.
