Tap Animation Distortion

  • Hi Meredith,

    Happy to help you figure out your animation troubles. Based on what you're describing, it sounds likely that there was an problem with preparing and exporting animation layers from Maya, since the Idle animation seems like it's okay. I have a few questions that can help us pinpoint what's going on:

    1) When you say added the Tap Anim script, are you manually adding the script to a SceneObject, or are you working with the one that's included in the template?

    2) Have you made any modifications to the Tap Anim script?

    3) Did you bake out your animation Layers in Maya? If you solo the animation layers in Maya, does everything look correct?

    4) Are you passing in the correct layer names in Maya?

    5) After your animated object was imported, is it possible that any of its child Scene objects were transformed? Any scaling of joints in Lens Studio could cause scaling issues in the animation.

    6) Is your animated object parented to anything with a strange scale?

    Let me know and we'll try to narrow down the source of this issue!
