View Full Version : inverted animation in MB?

Dear friends,
I have animation, say, of a character running or falling. How can inverted animation be created from that in Motionbuilder?
Thanks in advance

Hi, look the help for Timewarp, that can be found from Fcurve window. That shoud do the job and and much more.
Hope this helps,

Hello, Anssi, Timewarp really did help and much more - that tool helps to gain much powers over timing in animation.
Thanks a lot!

If you mean Mirrow Animation, just simply put character as ControlRigOutput and then use mirrow check box.
What that does, is joints drive control rig, then simply plot animation, and your character will be mirrowed.

Thanks for that, xcomb,
but I really needed inverted animation (forward to backward), not mirrored (right to left). Timewarp does that ok.
