This is a follow up to the "Switch Layer Dials" tutorial. It is just a faster easier way to set up a smart bone to control switch layers!

In this video I'm using it to rig a mouth switch layer to a smart bone and then us the bone to help me lip sync!

A 1000 thank you's to Victor Paredes for clueing me in on how to set this up the easy way and to show me how to use the copy previous keyframe function in Anime Studio! Awesome all day!!!

I thought I'd make a video on how to make a smart bone action control switch layers. I also wanted to show a quick set up on making a smart bone dial that is set away from the character.

I should also mention if you want to make a visual reference smart bone you can just make it so it just controls a specific switch layer off to the side without linking it to another bone as well.
The reason I made the first example linked to the hand is so that in a busy scene, your control will always be near the hand!

My character was just getting too many switch layers in it so I'm in the process of creating a few of these switch layer controls and I thought I'd share as always!!! smile
