Hello Everyone,

Is it possible to save a modifier motion as an .mdd file? I'm creating specific motions in the graph editor that I would like to save out but see no options to save out as a file. Thanks, as always you are all a great help and resource. The manual didn't cover that section very well.

MDD is for vertex displacement only (and the format is to limited to be re-purposed for item motion envelopes I think). You can save/load an items motion from the menu, Save Motion File and Load Motion File. If you can't find them, use the search function in the Menu Editor.

Saving motion will however only save keyframed motion I think, so you will need to bake the modified motion first.

I believe you can add a dynamic,say ClothFX, then scan motion to save. It should save any kind of motion even deformations with bones. However, I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for.
