Animate on top of Motion Clip?

Recommended Posts

Hi!  Is there any way to add animation to certain bones on top of a character that is animated with motion clip?  I have blended a few walking animations for my character, but at one point in the middle of his walking I want him to twist his torso to turn. Is there any way to do this?  Like just edit the keyframes for the spine bone at that point in time?  Thanks!

Hi,

You can go to Hierarchy Tab in the motion Clip and disable the mocap for certain Joints to keyframe them by hand. If you want to change in the middle of mocap Animation you might duplicate the Clip and blend from original mocap clip A to customized keyframed clip B

Hi

 

when putting a clip onto a layer below the original top clip you can transition from the top clip to the one below it then transition back..  In my video at 1:21 this should show you this method along with what zeden has already covered.

    How exactly do I disable the individual bones?  The only thing I have tried is pressing delete when the bone is selected, but then the entire model gets messed up....

    Click the motion clip in the animation timeline. Go to attributes window and open the hierarchy tab. Now you see all the objects inside the motion clip with checkboxes

    Aaahh there it is!  Thank you very much!

    Alright, well I've been messing with it for a bit now and still think I am doing something wrong.... First of all, the blending of two clips does not work as smoothly as it should (gif attached). Also, I am able to disable the bones in the heirarchy, but how do I animate them on top of the motion clip? Animating the bones in the heirarchy for my base clip doesn't work as once I click the keyframe button, the bones jump back to the position they were in before. What am I doing wrong? I just want to make his left arm move differently than was in the mixamo clips.

    for mixing the clips, I used the "make transition" tool, but it doesn't seem to be working as well as I want...

    the bones are disabled, which shows in the viewport

    but when I try to rotate/keyframe any of the bones here, it doesn't let me. Is there somewhere else I am supposed to do this?
