Having trouble with the Graph Editor
I'm using sfm and trying to do a walk cycle with a HWM model of the Heavy. I try making the heavy move from one postion to another with the Graph Editor and it ends up like this.

Help would be nice on fixing this issue.

Thank you for reading

It looks like you're moving body parts and not rotating joints. Until you get the hang of the graph editor, I would suggest using the motion editor to get the base animation down, then go to the graph editor to see what that animation looks like and make adjustments. Experiment with this until you get the hang of it.

In the graph editor, for each joint (bone) there are 6 elements, x, y and z Position and x, y and z rotation. Moving the Position elements while trying to rotate the Rotation elements will result in what you've shown us. Especially if you have got the proper bones selected to start with.

Also, to move a model in the graph editor, do not select the entire animation set, only the root transform.
