My graph Editor isn't populating when I hit "I"

Hi I've gone through your video and everything worked seamlessly. however, when I hit the "I" key the Graph Editor does not automatically populate as per your video. I am sure it is something silly at my end as to why it doesn't work

  • Literally after posting the question I have noticed that after hitting the "I" key my rig blocks were not selected. After selecting all rigs, the rig editor populated correctly. :)

    Good work on getting it sorted Simon.

    Posting a question and then figuring it out is always the way haha.

    The confusing thing with Blender is that you can still have an active bone even when nothing is selected, so that is why you are seeing the yellow in the channel boxes but not in the GE or Dopesheet.
