I think I've found a "workable" solution to the target reach issue, by unlinking the motion dummy parent from the root
in the link tab. Once I get the reach targets in global space it's possible to establish a motion edit workflow that does
the job but has me jumping through several non intuitive hoops. When I get the time and if anyone is interested I can
do a short tutorial on it.
As for the other mocap editing tools, they are clumsy beyond belief. One of the main "features" is to sample your
animation from a clip into motion channels that you can then edit in the motion curve editor. However this sampling
is not done on a frame by frame basis and seriously butchers your motion capture file, even before you start editing.
I would love to see a sampling option that leaves the original motion intact and then lets me sample the parts of the
curves I want to by hand. This is a necessary feature to do any kind of quality motion editing.
I don't want to turn this into a rant, because I can really see the potential of the motion live platform, but the motion
edit features really need to be brought up to scratch.
