Where can I find standing and sitting animations which preserve the "LookAt" feature... where you turn your head to look at whatever you've clicked on? I have some very old anims by Luth Brodie which allow LookAt, but anything new that I've tried blocks it completely. And I've really looked all over. No one even seems to mention the LookAt function, as if it was no longer important :(.

I'd REALLY love to be able to breathe at the same time as looking at the person I'm talking to!

there is an AO on MP - iirc it's called chubby girl (if youre a man you may wanna give it a try too) - it doesnt control the head

it's free so no harm trying - i like it cos my arms don't stick in my not very fat body with the animations in it

The main problem is the fact that we can't blend animations in SL.

An animation either has full control of a bone... or no control. That makes it impossible to have a "breathing animation" with a sitting animation for example, unless the sitting animation includes the breathing motion.

So, for a sitting animation to work with the "turn head towards camera LookAt target," it needs to not control the head or neck at all. Any AO you might be wearing must also not have a "sitting on object" animation that controls the head.

Since the anim that supports LookAt needs to NOT control the head or neck at all, are there any creators that sell such anims? And identify their product as such? I mean, sure, one can go to every possible store and try every possible pose stand. I've tried an awful lot and don't find it, so I'm wondering if anyone has found anything. @Emma, I looked on MP and didn't find the anim you mentioned... I'd be happy to check it out.

Thx!

I'm so sorry - I only "bought" it in January and it's no longer on MP. I remember seeing a review citing the head not being controlled as an issue - maybe the creator got upset about that...

I will contact you inworld with the creator's name.

I would be interested in this too.

I have a robot cat friend who looks up at me when he is talking. It's very cute.

I noticed that with people with rigged eyes that have a head overriding ao, if they send look at info, the eyes follow you whilst the head turns, making the character give you the 'side eye' which is an unfortunate effect
