Non Linear Animation is new to Carrara 6, it allows users to create clips of animation (or poses) that can be reused and combined on multiple tracks of animations. The classic example is the creation of a walk cycle for a person or in a similar way to non-linear video editing to allow animation to be grouped and then the relative timings of these changed.
This tutorial was created with metric settings and time in frames and is based on the Carrara manual from page 509.
The clips can be disabled by ticking the Mute checkbox on the track or by clicking on the eye to the left of the track.
One thing that can be done with our NLA clip is to make it repeat. For this to happen we need to turn it into a master clip then drag out the duration. We will follow on from the previous example.
Coming soon, offsets, additive vs override mode and blending.
