Transferring animations between scene files.

I have two scene files, same character model and rig in each scene. I'm trying the transfer the animation (saved keyframes) from one scene to the other. This is probably idiot simple, but I'm missing something in the process.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

The short answer is "use 'Load From Scene'", but I think there may be a ton of caveats.

But, in case you were waiting, there's the short answer.

There are some ways.

a) IK BOOSTER - select the object wich is the parent od hips bone and press m , so add IK Booster to it . Click SAVE MOTION and save motion as a TXT file. Open the new rig, add IK booster too and now LOAD motion file as TXT to it.

b) Just REPLACE OBJECT if weightmaps and rigs are the same ( same shape )

c) Just RENAME OBJECT before scene loading.

The first case works once you don't have the same motion shape but same bones names.

Hope this helps you!
