    More Motion Mixer Puzzlement


    I've created a fairly straightforward 36 frame walk cycle (30fps) that I want to use in Motion Mixer. In Layout, frame 0 and frame 36 are identical. To preview the animation I set my frame range from 0 to 35, and it loops perfectly.

    So my thinking was that I should specify a frame range of 0-35 when I make a Motion Mixer clip of that walk cycle, but there's a glitch at the loop point when I add a Repeat Post Behavior, like a frame is missing. In my layout timeline frame 36 is no longer identical to frame 0.

    I found that I have to specify frames 0-36 when I send the motion to Motion Mixer to get a clean loop. This is not intuitive to me. It seems like I'd be getting two identical at the loop point in Motion Mixer when I add the Repeat Post Behavior, but the loop looks clean. Frame 0 is identical to frame 36, 72, 108, etc.

    So I know what works, I'm just curious as to why it works this way.

    Motion mixer needs the last frame so it knows where the animation is going before that. It will match perfectly if you copy the motion over and over.
