Hi,

I'm new to the software, but I've watched most of the tutorials and I have one short project completed already. I like this software... it makes sense to me!

But today in the middle of resuming my work, I find that some of the character actions are greyed out, and clicking on them won't do anything. Other actions that aren't greyed out can be added to the timeline as expected. Specifically Conversational1 and 2 just stopped working for me!

I closed the program and reopened it but the problem did not go away.

I'm running Windows 8.1 with 12 gigs of ram. Did not have this happen on the first project. Any ideas what's happening and specifically how to fix it? I had hoped to get this project finished this weekend, but now it's looking like that won't happen...


Apologies if there is already a thread about this. I did exercise due diligence by searching for a little over an hour, to no avail.

Hi Pat - you've been busy

Usually the Action will be greyed out because the characters current stance won't allow it - some actions can only be performed while sitting, for example. This means you could have a set of Actions which work fine in testing, but when you go to shoot it the character is now standing/sitting so the Action is no longer available. Hope that makes sense.

Thanks Ziggy! That's important info to know! (is that written down anywhere, or is it tribal knowledge that gets handed down from user to user on a need to know basis?)

In retrospect, I *DID* move my character to a sitting position just before the conversational actions got greyed out....

The good news is that I substituted other actions and got my project finished before Monday morning !
