Hi I have been downloading some mixamo animations but was wondering if anyone else has the same problems I am having, and subsequently how can I solve it.
Simply put if i use a walk motion (or any motion wher the character is not on the same spot) and the character takes a couple of steps the root widget doesnt move with the character it stays put. So if i loop it the character just jumps back to the start position. Is there an easy fix please.

Many thanks
Woody

Don't loop it.
At the end of your first motion, apply it again and right click motion --> align --> Root... and so on...
That should work Wink

This was recently discussed. There is currently no merging of clips that happen at the same time. An exception are Mixed Moves clips, which can be combined, but they work only for standard human characters.

I tried one way but that didn't work. First I applied the walk clip and then the bark clip to the dog, so that you have two clips in succession.

I then right-clicked on each clip and selected Sample Motion Clip > Sample. This will reveal the keyframes of each clip. I then pasted the Bark keyframes into the Walk keyframes.

Unfortunately, the keyframes are all lumped together for each clip (not separated by body part as for human characters). You would want to remove any leg motion from the Bark clip but that is not simple. You could do it with the Curve Editor by flattening any leg motion, but that's higher order work...Unsure

Another option is to keyframe the bark motion. Study the existing one and then replicated that on the Walk motion. But that is also not straight forward.

OK, I had to practice what I preached and here is the result:



The dog and the motions are from Wil Veeke. I used "Sp Walk.iMotion"and "Sp Bark.iMotion".

Procedure:
1. I exposed the keyframes of the Barking motion by doing a Sample Motion Clip -) Sample. 
2. Using the Curve Editor I removed all leg motions from the Barking motion.
3. I copied all keyframes from the Barking motion and dropped them into the Walking motion.
4. I then did a Collect Clip to save as a new motion clip for reuse.

The clip can be looped as shown in the video.

By any chance are you using iClone 7 because im still on 6.5 and i dont think i  can get curve editor for this version. 
Its a shame because that is just what i need not only for this character but i could use a similar step for other problems i have. 
I really appreciate the time and effort for your explaination and will use it if i can ever afford iClone 7. Being just a hobbyist is such a drag, but i think my wife would divorce me if i spent any more money on iClone.

Thanks again

Woody

I'm sorry, you did indeed post in the iClone 6 forum. Yes, I do have iClone 7. I don't think there would be a solution for iClone 6. Maybe you can appease your wife somehow... I'm also married, but my wife is OK with my animation hobby.

What I did is based on this pack: https://marketplace.reallusion.com/huntingdogs-with-58-motions

I wondered if the motion I created would work in iClone 6. It does! (Most things created in iClone 7 don't work in 6.)

I have attached the motion for you to try. (I hope you have the pack.)
