Shy function

(Updated 09/04/2019)

You can work more efficiently by hiding parameters that you do not need, for example, when creating animations for embedding in SDKs.
(breathing to operate autonomously, hair swaying to be set by physics calculations, etc.)

 

Hide properties

Use the [Shy] function to hide properties.

First, click on the small [Shy Button] to the left of each property.
Then click on the large [Shy Button] above the track to hide the specified element.
Click the large [Shy Button] again to return to the original view.

To hide multiple properties, you can efficiently hide them by [dragging] the small [Shy Buttons] one after the other.

 

If properties are separated by folders, the shy can be applied to each folder.
Click the small [Shy Button] to the left of the folder name, as you would if you were hiding the property by itself.
Clicking the large [Shy Button] above the track hides the specified element.
Click the large [Shy Button] again to return to the original view.

 

Shy can also be applied to all properties at the same time.
Click [Shy All] in the pull-down menu to the right of the large Shy Button, and you will see the small [Shy Button] clicked in all properties.
In this state, clicking the large [Shy Button] will apply Shai to all properties.

To cancel, click [Show All].

 

In the following video, the shy is applied once to all properties to show only the angle Z.
It can be used in various situations, such as when you want to display only a portion of many properties.

Tips
You can use it in various ways, such as hiding the parameters for facial expressions when you want to create body movements first, or hiding the parameters for parts that do not need to be moved.

 

Hide Selected Properties:
Only selected properties can be made shy.

Shy unselected properties:
Only properties that are not selected are made shy.

Shy extra properties where keyframes are not struck:
Extra properties that are not keyframed can be made shy.

Show only selected Form Edit object:
You can make all objects shy except for the object selected in the form animation.

 

Enable the operation of the shied properties on the property groups

Keyframes for parameters to which Shy is applied are not selected.
Therefore, if multiple keyframes are selected and edited across parameters to which the shy is applied,
the keyframes in hidden areas are not affected by editing.

However, if you move keyframes together with a parameter folder or a track section selected,
the keyframes of the parameters to which Shy is applied will be moved at the same time, but you can control the movement of the selected keyframes
by unchecking “Enable the operation of the shied properties on the property groups”
in the menu at the upper right of the timeline.


Checked (default):

In the following image, the “eyeballs” are made shy and the entire keyframe is moved to the right after selecting the green property group.

Then, release the shy and check the “eyeball” keyframe, and you will see that it has moved to the same position.

 


Unchecked:
In the following image, the same “eyeballs” are made shy, and after selecting the green property group, the entire keyframe is moved to the right.

Then, release the shy and check the keyframe of the “eyeball” to confirm that it is not affected by the overall movement.
