problems with walking women avatars

Hi there,


I am really having a hard time trying to make some women avatars walk. The avatars come from the vizard Complete characters set.

Specifically, the avatar has these strange s-shaped arms visible in the attached picture "strange walking woman.jpg". Here is the code

Code:
import viz
import vizact
import viztask

def world():
	global root
	view = viz.MainView

	viz.MainView.getHeadLight().disable()
	#add sun-like directional light

	l = viz.addLight()
	l.position(0, 1, 0, 0) #sets light direction
	l.intensity(0.9)

	l2 = viz.addLight()
	l2.position(1, 0, 1, 0) #sets light direction
	l2.intensity(0.8)

	l3 = viz.addLight()
	l3.position(-1, 0, -1, 0) #sets light direction
	l3.intensity(0.6)	

	l4 = viz.addLight()
	l4.position(0, 0, 1, 0) #sets light direction
	l4.intensity(1)

	l5 = viz.addLight()
	l5.position(0, -1, -1, 0) #sets light direction
	l5.intensity(0.8)

	#root encapsulates all world geometry
	root = viz.addGroup()
world()

viz.go()
#viz.mouse(viz.OFF)

av_trial = viz.add('avatars_happiness/sportive03_f_highpoly/sportive03_f_highpoly.cfg', pos=( 0, 0, 3 ), euler=(180,0,0))

viz.MainView.setPosition( 0, 1.6, 0 )


# ACTIONS

# walk action
WALK = vizact.walkTo( pos=[ 0, 0, 0 ], walkSpeed = 0.5, walkAnim=44)
	
def move(av):
	'''the avatar walks'''
	av.addAction(WALK)
	
# some callbacks to start animation
def HandleKeyboard(key): 
	
	if key == 'w':
		move(av_trial)
		
viz.callback(viz.KEYDOWN_EVENT, HandleKeyboard)
I am seeing this strange effect on more than one women avatars


However, if I try to substitute the WALK variable with this:

Code:
WALK = vizact.walkTo( pos=[ 0, 0, 0 ], walkSpeed = 0.5, walkAnim=viz.AUTO_COMPUTE, verb = 'walk' )
I get instead an even stranger result visible in the attached picture "walkAnim_vizAUTO_COMPUTE.jpg"

but what really puzzle me is that everything works fine with male avatars


Any suggestions?


best regards,
armo
