I had a look on line as to how the Trax Editor works and I was amazed at how easy it was to create a clip and to then loop it.
So I will be using the Trax Editor for my walk and run cycle of the cat, just to get my head over how it works and to get a looping animation without having to key it in over and over again.
To begin with I needed to create a character set so that I could use the Trax Editor. This also helped me animate the cat a little more.
I then looped the animation with the editor so that it did more steps and lasted longer than the original. When I played it back and the cats animation went very strange as you can see in the above picture. To fix this I had to edit the channel offsets so that the cat stayed in place. I had to make them all absolute as the cat was moving forward very slightly every frame so by changing it to all absolute the cat stayed in place.
