View Full Version : Animation: saving & importing motion

10-23-2005, 09:15 PM
Hey gang, here's my situation:

I made a walk cycle & a run cycle using the same object file but in two different scenes. Now that I have these cycles animated. I want to create a new scene, load the same object I animated. Then import the animation data of both files so I can mix them in motion mixer. I'm writing this post because I've missably failed LOL.

I tried using the MD_Scan & MD_Plug tools as I saw in the video tutorial on the newtek site, but I believe it only works for the scene file you've added both plugins to in the object properties. I've looked though my manual & really don't know what to look for. So hopefully one you cunning animators can give me some suggestions to tackle this problem or show me another method for animating

Hi Darrell,

I think 'load from scene' will bring in an object along with it's animation- you might need to reset the content directory first.

You know what...I accidently found that option ( i have my custom menus so i hardly use the file pull down menu)...yeah I noticed it brings in all the animation...so I'll will try that and see how much i'll get accomplish thanks alot
