duplicating rigged layers?

Post by wilobo » Wed Mar 11, 2020 8:58 pm

I have a character rigged, the legs animate in a cancan style dance so the cross over the opposite leg. this then repeats. the problem is only one set of leg layers are above the other set. I need them both to intermittently overlay the opposite. I've tried duplicating the set with the controller so I can use opacity for a solution but the rigging is lost.

Ok, solved it by duplicating the whole comp 4 times, soloing the legs and toggle animated opacities.
