Look Poses

Look Poses.

This is something I threw together quickly to make the dialogue shots in my comic strips seem a little more natural, all these "poses" do is angle the head in various directions, it makes it easier to get NPCs to look at each other in shots, it's also handy for conversation shots between short and tall characters. These are far from fantastic but they do a job. I made these for something I was doing but now they're made I might as well share them in case anyone else finds a use for them.


The character on the right is the player character. 


Drop the contents of the rar file into your game folder and enable with the manager of your choice.


Delete the esp and the "Jims" folder from Meshes\characters\_Male\idleanims


To use:

For the player character go into third person, open the console, type TFC and hit enter, now type Player.playidle xxxx (xxxx) being the name of whatever pose you want, for 

example to look left enter player.playidle left. To reset the pose use player.playidle reset.

For NPCs, face the NPC, open the console, click on the NPC so their name appears at the top of the screen, type TLIK to turn off the head tracking, then playidle xxxx, again with the xxxx being the name of the pose you want to use, to put them back to normal use playidle reset on them. 

These can be used with facial expressions, just be sure to do the facial expressions first, they cannot be used with other poses. 


Jonas66 for his fantastic tutorial
