Lucian86,
check you have Keys for the biped root node ; if not, create them, maybe it'll fix your problem (both vertical & horizontal).

Another question

I currently working on Murray's serve. In the servewaiting animation, how come between two frames exactly the same (so with the same position of every element of the biped), the body is still moving a little bit (not much but enough to make it unpleasant). I controlled every element of the biped (the hand and footfingers as well) and there's no assigned animation in between..somehow it's still moving a little bit....that's for one range...in other frames with the same situation the body is not moving instead


Can't help here. I don't know why it doesn't work on this particular moment of your animation.
Anyway, maybe you can try to triple the frame :?

I moved the frames until I managed to solve it (it still moves but it's hard to see in real speed)

So, i'm gonna reactivate this thread :) .
This animation of Djokovic's backhand was definitely the hardest for me by now. I tried my best to capture the signature style of his backhand.
I hope you will be as pleased as i am :wink: ! If that is the case i will upload the animation any time soon.

Brilliant as always :)
He once used in the follow through of his backhand to twist his racquet until was almost parallel to the ground like in this video at 0.30
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJpmtCm70Vc

This was a more original backhand than is now (which is like your animation); sometimes though he still does that
By the way, are you german, swiss or austrian ? :)


Just in time for my Nalbandian's backhand:

I know the left hand is not perfect and I'll try to make it better. If there are no suggestions to improve it, I'm going to upload it

Here you go then and enjoy

By the way Sam, this one is dedicated to you ;)

Next, I want to make Federer's backhand work better ingame (not pleased with correction I did after), Nalbandian's forehand and maybe, if I succeed, a new Berdych's forehand version (I realized the stroke is too fast for him)

I used the same video to create my anim. I know this specific motion you are talking about, but Djokovic hitting this one rarer than the one i created and i always try to make a general motion.

Great Nalbandian backhand :thumbleft: !!

I guess you noticed the language of the Menu in my video :). Well, i'm from good ol' Germany :mrgreen: .

You are right Lucian! He hits the backhand that you described more often in game than the one i created.
So many players don't have the same strokes in practice as in game!!
I will change this and upload another video later.

Release both of them...don't be parsimonious :D The first one we can use for many other players

Anyway, I didn't thought that now he hits more that kind of backhand; he used to in the past, that's for sure

Nobody wants to do all strokes of David Nalbandian (serve and slice)???? would be amazing to have full pack of nalby, we have only Federer, Murray, Djokovic (we need bh), Nadal (serve, bh), Del Potro, Berdych, Kuerten and Gonzalez, Gasquet (slice)
