I have created a scene where characters will have to exit a building and walk down steps to a court yard, or walk up steps to leave. My problem is the going up/down the steps. I looked in the content store and market place and found only a few motions, that are very clumsy for me and mostly not use able. I found motions for all kinds of conniptions, gyrations,and psycho looking motions. I may have become too frustrated to see past my attitude, but getting a character motion for a simple walking down/up 5 steps is driving me  nuts.
Does any one have any suggestions or a link to a tutorial for an up/down steps motion without having to spend hours creating these actions from scratch????

I'm in the same boat and I sympathize with your frustration. 

There are ActorCore motions that are quite good, but they are aimed at a female character.

I am re-posting it again...
Some people find it's easy to follow, some are getting frustrated Tongue
But, that's the best I could offer at the time.

You basically have to manually animate a first step down and then with assistance of Pose Manager plug-in make a full 2 steps loop and then replicate it over timeline.
I personally use this technique for Up or Down steps with some additional tweaks which best suit for character mood.
Note: you must have even steps for stairs and a terrain made for it (or converted from). Otherwise there is much more manual work would require.

Tanks, I looked at your link. The stepping looks ok, but the rest makes the character look like a zombie (rigid).
I will try the tutorial posted below since if I can master it I will have something that I can maybe use in other projects.

It does certainly looks rigid. If you noticed I did not even turn to character front once to tweak limbs by X.
But as I mentioned, it's a base loop just to show how to make it without wasting much time on details.
You should certainly add/tweak movement "details" to the loop before replicating.
