The client side Animation Override (AO) was added to the Phoenix Viewer by Skills Hak. It allows you to replace your scripted AO, with one that is client based.
There are chat commands to turn the AO on or off. These can be found and customized in Preferences → Phoenix → CmdLine.
Most AOs in second life all follow the same syntax, so there is a very very high probability that yours will convert perfectly.
For more detail.. this is the format of a ZHAO 2 settings notecard, (not a ZHAO 1); pay close attention to how the brackets work.
For the sake of documentation though, here is an example notecard. Notice how the animation state is in brackets, followed by each name of the animation separated with a pipe character “|”. Lines should not be longer than 255 characters, and in the example below, the animations have been split up into 2 lines in order to not make the lines for Standing animations too long.

~Q. Why isn't it loading the information in my notecard!?!?
~A. Make sure the notecard is formatted as shown above, older ones will need modification.
~Q. Will other avatars, Phoenix viewer or not, see these animations?
