..anyone know of any way LW can record "live" animation? That is, click "Play" on the time line and then move an object/bones/camera in the scene - recording keyframes until you press stop.

This feature was called "Motion Capture" in 3DS Max...

Yep. Make sure autokey is on. set your start and end frames. click play and move object (or whatever) around until last frame is reached.

Yeah- I love the autokey. I pretty much leave it on period. Until you get used to it though the lil' bugger can bite you in the big toe on occasion by keyframing everything you move. But once you get used to it it is a major timesaver.
