I think I may have found a bug.
I have 1 model in my scene that is rigged/animated. I have multiple actions for this model. I then wanted to change a few bone names, so I went into edit armature mode, and changed the names I wanted. At first everything seemed fine, the animation for the action I was currently on worked just as it had before. However, when I switched to a different action, the old bone names still showed in the action "channels", I think they are called. I didn't see anyway of renaming them, and the model seemed as though it was not rigged for the bones I had changed the names of.
Is this a bug?
Does anyone know if this is a bug at all? I don't want to report it if it's not...
It's not a bug. Actions are made to work on multiple armatures, which is why they use the bones name to link correctly. That way, you could have an action for a walk cycle of a biped with wings (and angel for example) and it would work ok on one without wings.
So, just make sure you have the names right before starting to create multiple action blocks.

oh ok, thanks.
But, is there any way to rename the action channels(bone names) after you have made them? If not, it would be a great feature...
