I've been saving a few animations in a scene into Motion Mixer (LW 8). When I attempt to edit the animations throught the "Edit Motion" button, everything works fine (I get the "Motion drop successful" message). After I change the animation and hit the Edit Motion buttons again, I get a "Motion update failed" message and my changes are lost. Anyone know why?

Ok, I found a worak-around, if anyone else has this problem.

I think the problem stemmed from the fact that I was changing the position of objects that were added to actor after the motion was created.

My work-around is to hit the "Edit Motion" button, to load the keyframes into the timeline, then hit Edit Motion again, selecting "Discard Changes" and "Keep Channels" in the pop-up window. I then free the motion, and recreate it.
