Remember your poses - using Pose Library

Since it is possible to come up with multiple nice poses it would be nice if we could somehow remember them. After a little bit of research I found out it is possible (and easy) using the Pose Library.

The procedure is as follows:

  1. Select the armature and go into Pose Mode.
  2. In the Properties window enter the Armature Object Data context and find the Pose Library.
  3. Then add a pose library (button greyed out if not in pose mode).
  4. When you wish to save a pose, select all bones using the A key and click the β€œ+” button. To recall a pose select all bones and click the β€œlens” button.

Important: it seems that all operations work on the currently selected bones only. So have the whole lamp armature selected when using the library.

This screenshot should clarify the interface:

In case anyone is interested here is how two of those poses looked like when rendered.
