Once you apply a motion clip to an actor, then you may want to fine tune the offset (position) for each bone. This can be done via the Edit Motion Layer feature. The pose with the edited bones will be kept as a key in the Motion Layer track, and its effect will remain throughout the clip unless another key is set. The transition between the two motion layer keys will then auto-generate.
An absolute motion layer key is for setting a motion layer key that takes charge in the angle of a specific bone, and ignores the effects of the underlying motion.
In iClone 5, setting absolute keys has been replaced with a combination of 1. Removing Motions of Body Parts and 2. Adding Motion Layer Keys by the Edit Motion Layer panel.
If you want to set a relative motion key, also known as a relative key, so that the effect of the key blends into the underlying motion, then follow the steps below:
Adding a motion layer key for offsetting bones.
The motion layer keys affect the motion clip.
