copy those poses - Macromedia Director 3D

:( Hey everyone, a quick thing I can't find an answer to, which may be really simple but i can't find it... I have 2 characters in my 3D scene both with the same bones structure. (names and all - from 3DS max) One has animations galore on him and the other has nothing. how can I copy the animations from the first to the second so that the other character has exact same animations? I'd like to copy from one to others as I want to add more characters and If they all have animation included in their export ...

    Default copy those poses

    :(
    Hey everyone,
    a quick thing I can't find an answer to, which may be really simple but i
    can't find it...

    I have 2 characters in my 3D scene both with the same bones structure. (names
    and all - from 3DS max)
    One has animations galore on him and the other has nothing.
    how can I copy the animations from the first to the second so that the other
    character has exact same animations?

    I'd like to copy from one to others as I want to add more characters and If
    they all have animation included in their export it will make my files larger
    and would like to avoid said largeness.

    Can I some how copy the bones modifier with some secret piece of lingo I can't
    find or do I have to export second character with animations as well defeating
    my purposes and making my hair be pulled out? (or someone else's)

    any help greatly appreciated

    Hello,

    Reexport both your models without animation: uncheck Animation at export time.
    Export again this time checking ONLY Animation in order to create a motion only
    W3D file. Now, you have two W3D files. The scene with your characters and the
    motion. You can either use Lingo to assign the same motion to both characters
    or use the Load Motion From W3D and Play Animation behavior in the Chrome Lib
    free 2.0 version.

    Best regards,
    Karl Sigiscar.

    hey thanks for your reply Karl,

    -- "You can either use Lingo to assign the same motion to both characters or
    use the Load Motion From W3D and Play Animation behavior in the Chrome Lib free
    2.0 version. --

    I get the concept, but I'm a little rusty on the actual assigning the motion
    to both characters. I'll trowel through the help but at the most can only find
    addmodifier. And that doesn't seem to help.
    I haven't been in Director for a while and some of my knowledge of the 3D
    stuff has slip slided away. I remember I did it once with some soccer dudes
    quite easil but can't remember how. Any leads you know of?
