So characters can only follow flat surfaces?
Yes, so for now, you have to add plenty of keyframes manually to prevent your walking characters from penetrating your model.
Is it an issue that is going to be addressed soon?
I haven't heard anything from Ferry regarding his plans for the Advanced Animation
effect yet. It is currently on the bug tracker list due to the following issues:Excerpt from another post:KNOWN ISSUES: Advanced Animation effect
The Advanced Animation
effect only uses curves when an animated model has 4 or more keyframes
. Otherwise it will use linear interpolation between keyframes.
If there are fewer than 4 keyframes, the animation curve is not smooth, and walking characters for example, will appear to change orientation by 180 degrees for 1 frame just before reaching each keyframe.
The reason for this is that a different algorithm is used when there are fewer than 4 keyframes.
Some users have also reported unexpected behaviour when animating models, for example disappearing 3D people or certain models that can't seem to be animated.
