Using the MixMoves Panel (New for 5)

The MixMoves (motion graph) system consists of hundreds of well-calculated, daily motions for top mocap quality. The system automatically generates natural transitions between previously selected motions for male or female actors. Its motion graph technology presents a general framework for human motion states to blend together, seamlessly. Storytellers simply need to select target motions under different states such as standing idle, sitting, kneeling or lying down. The system then automatically sequences motions and blends them together in a natural, believable manner.

  1. Apply a character.
  2. Move to another time frame where you wish the character to start acting.
  3. Pick the character, go to the Animation >> Motion, and click the MixMoves button in the Modify panel (Shortcut: Shift + F5).
  4. Select the motion category from the Profile drop-down list.
  5. Select one of the motion categories from the left tree view. The right pane auto-refreshes as well.
  6. Double-click on one of the templates in the right pane. The character will start to act accordingly.

    The character acts the target motion after an auto-generated transition motion.

    The motion clip in the timeline.

  7. You may then double-click another motion template from the same or another category before or after the previous motion stops.

    The character performs the new motion with a natural transition motion ahead of the new motion.

    The motion clips starts with a transition motion (T).


    • IClone will automatically pause once the target pose is finished.
    • If you enable the Auto Loop Motion box, then iClone will keep generating the motion without pausing until you press the Space bar or stop playing.
    • The transition motions emphasis on correctness rather than instant timing.
    • You may use this feature to connect various motions with natural transition motions in order to create prototypes of custom motions.
