The default animations for male and female

Load AO Notecard ButtonThe EZ Animator Deluxe comes with a few animations that can be used for your Animation Override. A walking, sit and stand animation is provided for both female and male avis. To use these animations as your AO, click the Load AO Notecard button on AO controls and choose either ~AO_male or ~AO_female. You will see the following message when the notecard is done loading:

HUDDLES EZ Animator Deluxe v1.2.0: Finished reading notecard ‘~AO_male’.

Please note that when you load an AO notecard, you will not see the names of the animations loaded into the buttons. That is not how it works. It loads the names of the animations from the notecard into the memory of the script. The script then automatically plays the right animation at the right time depending on whether your avis is sitting, standing, walking, flying, etc.

The AO on/off button

Next, turn on the Animation Override by touching the AO button to turn it green. Your avatar should now be walking and standing in a more natural way. To turn off the AO, touch the button again to turn it red. You can also turn the AO on and off by saying /99ao on and /99ao off.

The Sit on/off button

The Sit button allows you to toggle just the Sit animation from your AO. Green means the sit function is on. Red means it’s off. This is useful when sitting on pose balls or dance balls. For instance, you might by default want to leave your AO on, but your Sit off, so when you sit on a poseball, the animation that is played is always the one in the poseball rather than the one in your HUD.

    I have the Huddles EZ Animator Deluxe v1.2.0. I am slowly learning to use it but ran into a problem when it came to animaiton overides. I don’t have an AO card listed when I use the load notecard button. I have an Macro example card with AO Demo on it but that just makes me dance. My other problem is my Huddle keeps reproducing. I now have 11 of them and can’t tell which is which. Any suggestions for these problems?

    Hi Luckee, the first problem is that you are hitting the Load Notecard button, not the Load AO Notecard button. There are two different buttons for loading notecards.

    The way you find the Load AO Notecard button is click on the flip button at the bottom of the HUD (it’s the little circular button), until you see the AO and Sit buttons. Now hit that button that looks like a computer disk and you should see the list of AO notecards.

    The other part of your post is about why it keeps copying. Well, it’s a copyable object, so every time you rez it, a new copy of the HUD is made. You can rez your HUD without copying it in two ways. You can add a no copy animation to the HUD or you can drop it on the ground by first wearing it and then right clicking on it and choosing “Drop” from the pie menu.

    I just bought the Huddles EZ Animator, yet I don’t seem to have the AO notecard. Hmmmmmm……

    oh they are in there, you are probably clicking on the wrong ‘load’ button. You need to first use the flip button to change to the AO controls, then click the load button. Read my previous reply to Luckee.

    i have a landing animation i have put into Huddles but it only plays the first second or so. Is there a way to make it play the whole thing ?

  6. Keiki Lemieux Says:

    Your avatar only stays in the “landing” state for a very brief time before it switches to the “standing” state. Since the AO uses the actual avatar states to govern what animation is playing, the designer of your landing animation either didn’t test their animation in standard AOs or didn’t seem to care that it didn’t work in standard AOs.

    Is there anyway to compensate for this? Yes, probably. The ZHAO script inside the HUD is left open and is editable. At some point I’ll probably write directions about how to hack the script to make it work with this animator’s landings.

    I’m having some trouble loading my AO/EZAD. I’ve loaded some of my dances on there, and was in the process of loading some ao poses onto the ao notecard, but my char is now dancing…. without the EZAD being worn. I put the HUD back on and she goes into convulsions. I remove it and she is still dancing. I do not have any other AO’s equipped at this time, so I’m really confused. Help?

    Where can I find more information on how to add or change a notecard? I am trying to add more then one sit to the default card, but I do not know what divider to use between the animation names. Only the first one shows when I choose the sit option and get the blue menu to choose which sit
