MorphMixer and MotionMixer
 
I would like to know if we can incorporate the morphmixer
animations in each motion created, because actually i got
the morphmixer animation that play independantly from the
motionmixer animation ordering.
this makes me have to finish all my motions(animations saved) and order them together before animating the morphs.
And the most inconfortable thing is that i have to redo all the morphs animations, if i ever change the order of the motions, and this is the same thing if i scalea motion, of course.
:)

thats what i do
 
As far as I know motion mixer is just a quick way to through some motions together to make a quick animation. Think of motion mixer like a motion capture device its only going to capture broad motions.

the solution
 
I got the solutions in a post from gerardo, thanks man.
in the moment to create the motion for the Actor_Items is to select the Select_XChannel option, there you will be able to choose the Morphgroups of your objects that you want to incorporate; then when you scale or change the order of the motions, the included MorphMixers in each motion will follow the changes of MotionMixer.

Re: MorphMixer and MotionMixer
 
I think I have to correct you here. Actualy it's a very powerfull tool.

With motion mixer you can edit and combine the motions of complete characters or any other animated object or hierarchy. You can even use the motion of one character for another one, speed it up slow it down, loop it make it go backwards.

I even use it to transfer all the keyframes from one character to a different one in another scene, and can continue keyframing afterwards.

Think of if more as something like Premiere for 3d motion clips.
