I used to translate an entire character's animation by moving the tear drop in Motion Blend. I heard a rumor that you can do it easier in Motion Builder 7 Story Window. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks

Hi,
once you have created a Character track in Story turn on the ghosting and switch the viewer to the mode you can see the Ghost. You can move and match individual clips in space.

Oh very nice. You just move that little white triangle around to move him. Thanks, I think they have made the story window much more user-friendly than what it sed to be. I doubt that I will even go back to using the motion blend again for translating the character. I'll just use it to blend motion. Thanks for teh quick response!
