Animation Demonstration

Well, here are the preliminary new gaits for the horses. I apologize for the sound quality--somehow in the upload process the soundtrack went askew with the video. Not quite sure why, as the AVI file I have is all nice and properly synched.

Edit: I uploaded to YouTube, and it works better now. I really like the WeGame community, but they are still ironing out a few glitches (mind you, it is completely free, so one cannot complain too much)

As you can see, I'm using the new "Prance" option, which allows one to have the horse continue to move its legs regardless of your avatar's position. Frankly, it was useful for me in the process of finetuning the animations, so I simply left it. I'm not QUITE sure how useful it may be in reality, unless one wishes to have SL dressage competitions.
