Hi there,

If I have an agent who is currently performing some type of idling behavior/animation, but I want it to speak on command, how do I do so?

I read about the 'execute' command in VizHelp, that states: "Perform animation 2 once while animation 1 is going" However, I think something about the speak command is incompatible with execute, because I get an 'AttributeError: Action instance has no attribute '__int__''.

If I do write something like:
agent.idle(16) #where 16 is the idling animation
speech = agent.speak(---, ---, ---)
agent.act(speech)

Then the program has to wait until the idling behavior is done until the avatar can speak.

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

You can perform actions simultaneously by adding them to different channels. The default channel is 0. So try adding the speech action to channel 1:agent.act(speech,1)
