Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing animation layers, part of Maya 2009 New Features.
Now let's take a look at how to edit animation that is in layers. I've got this…file open called Simple_WalkRun and we have a couple of layers here. And if I…select this body and go into the Graph Editor, you'll notice something a little…different. What happens is when you create layers, those layers actually show…up in the Graph Editor. So I have a Run_Layer, a Walk_Layer and my…BaseAnimation layer just like I have here.…
So if your object is a member of any layer, you are going to start getting…additional entries here in the Graph Editor, as well as the Dope Sheet.…Now if I want to, I can certainly expand the layer and edit the curves. So for…example, this is my active layer and so I can actually edit those curves. If I…unlock the Run_Layer, you can see I can edit those curves. If I select my…Walk_Layer, while it's locked and the other one is active, you will see that I…can't touch these curves. They are grayed out, so I really can't see them.…
Now this is also another way of finding out what objects are in what layers. So…
