Hi, I have some problems with the walking people. They are a very great feature, but I sometimes have problems to let them walk like I want to.
I sometimes had the problem that from one take to the other (in the storyboard) the people were gone or the other way around. Let me give you an exmple: I wanted to let them walk in to my screen. But that did not happen. First you see a fade in into my screen, the camera is standing still, in the next take, same camera position, suddenly the 2 people are there and start walking out of the screen. I wanted it the other way araound! And how can it be, that suddenly an object appears, which was somewhere else before and that before the animation of the object has started. I think that must be a bug and this function must be redisigned. A great think would be that the people walk around more automatically, like in crysis for example. There you can define a shape in which they are allowed to walk, than the software calculates all their possible positions and the scene is alife.
Same for the cars. Cars animation would be great with paths or even in conjunction with a road editor.
