Animation woes and a good book
1) the sitting animation is 90degrees rotated from the standing. I guess if I had Max I'd have spotted that earlier. But I don't, so I didn't :(
2) Unity doesn't like blending through such a big rotation. Actually I'm not technically using a blend anyway. I'm using the fade. Maybe the blend would work? Who knows? Unity aren't answering my questions which is a bit frustrating. Anyway it sometimes works depending on the starting rotation in world space of the old lady. Strange that it depends on world space. I would have expected them to do the blend in object space then transform to world space. Anyway it doesn't matter cos it's busted and I can't fix it. Matt is going to try and rotate the animations and then hopefully that will fix the problem. It's taken a long time to work out what's wrong and that I can't fix it. Which is doubly frustrating
On a more positive note I've got a great book from Amazon for the bargain second hand price of $30.00 (should have been about $70 new). The snappily and excitingly named "Pro C# 2008 and the .NET 3.5 Platform". It's become my favourite bedtime read. Simon knows it all but I need to swot up on some of the more obscure aspects of C# and .net. Also on a positive note Telstra are connecting up our phone and broadband. Looks like we'll get ADSL2. It will be nice to have a reasonably fast connection at home again. For the past six months we've made do with wireless which is a bit hit and miss.
Oh and I remember now why I was so keen to move to WA a few years back.
Canberra winter is cold enough to freeze the nuts of a bicycle...
