Hi, A few weeks ago I was trying to create some animations for the game, but I got quite frustrated because the tutorials I was following weren't specific enough and they got me lost.

I was wondering if someone wouldn't mind helping me with a few questions I have. My main problem isn't animating in itself, but it has more to do with files: converting, using the right programs, which files to use for what, ect.

Would anyone like to give me their contact info, such as an msn address? I ask this because usually when I post my questions on the forum, the answers I get just lead me o more questions or they aren't detailed enough for... someone like me.

Well, I do appreciate the help!

I've written a fair amount about Dragon, the animating program for JA created by Wudan on the moviebattles forums. Dragon FAQ - MovieBattles Community Giving you my MSN would be pointless seen as I don't use my MSN as it brings my aging laptop to a standstill. You also haven't said with which program you are wanting to animate with. If it's Dragon I can answer most of your problems if you post them here, if it's Max or XSI I can be of no help.

Thank you for that, Wytchking.

I would like to edit with Dragon. MY first concern is that I wish to edit two people animations, which I would need to make while they are both displayed. The Dragon guide says this can be done, but it does not say how. Then I wouldn't know how to export the animation of each selected avatar individually.

I would like to edit an animation like the fighting moves you can perform with the cheats (like grab, punch). I don't even know if it's feasible though. I wonder if coding would be needed. IF I retimed the animation, especially, do you think coding would be needed? Thats just my immediate question and I have some others regarding getting the animation into the game.

Thanks for the help
