changing between avatar states

Hi, i have two problems i have bumped into :

1. i want the avatar to change between one state to another, wait a few seconds, and then return to its original state. how can this be done?

avatar.state(newState)
wait = vizact.waittime(3)
avatar.addAction(wait)
avatar.state(oldNum

did not work.

2. another problem i have, that the 2 state differ in the orientation - one of the states is facing forward and the other is facing backwards. to solve this
, i tried rotating the avatar just before changing the states, but this caused
an animation bug - since now it actually rotates BEFORE the animation swapping takes place, which is not the result i had wanted ( to make things clear, what happens now is that the avatar first rotates instantly around, and then makes a strange twirl in order to face the right direction ). How can i solve this?

Thanks!

1) The easiest method would be to use a task. Here is some sample code:
Code:
import viz
viz.go()

avatar = viz.add('vcc_female.cfg',pos=(0,0,5),euler=(180,0,0))

import viztask

def AvatarTask():
	
	avatar.state(2)
	
	yield viztask.waitTime(3)
	
	avatar.state(3)

viztask.schedule(AvatarTask)
2) Ideally, all your animations should start and stop facing the same direction. By default, when you transition between animation states, the avatar will blend between the current pose and the new animation pose. The quick turn you see is due to this blending. There is an optional delay parameter in the avatar.state command which controls how long the blending should take place. Try setting it to 0, it should remove the blending.
