Benefits of CMotion?

I've just been rigging this character (a frog) and looking through some preset models found a setting called CMotion.

I've not really done much character animation (hence my ignorance) so my question is should I apply CMotion to my new rig? What are the benefits and/or drawbacks?

I've been looking at tuts online and it's described as parametric non destructive, so I assume that means you can always backtrack to the original default pose.

Any advice will be much appreciated.

Cmotion is a cyclic motion tool (meaning that it is designed to create infinite looping motions - initially for walk cycles but it can be applied to anything).

So, if you want to make your frog move in a cyclic fashion, parametrically, then yes, by all means use it.

Thanks for the response. I've had a chance to look at a couple of things about CMotion and it looks like a powerful tool, if i'd known about it before it probably would have saved me a load of time!
