Bottom of the Page

Create panel (Helpers) Object Type rollout Crowd Setup rollout (Biped/Delegate Associations)

Select a Crowd object. Modify panel Setup rollout (Biped/Delegate Associations)

Use this dialog to associate any number of delegates with an equal number of bipeds. Add delegates and bipeds to the two lists, and order them so the desired pairs are across from each other. Then choose Make Specified Associations and click the Associate button. Alternatively, you can remove existing delegate-biped associations, or simply associate each delegate with the biped nearest it in the scene.

Associate Delegates With Closest Biped

When chosen, and you click the Associate button, character studio calculates the biped nearest each delegate in the scene and links the two together.

Set Delegates to Use Biped

When on, and you click the Associate button, character studio turns on the Use Biped option for all delegates listed in the dialog.
