Maya 7 - new animation tools?

Ok, there's probably been about 20 threads on this already and i've missed them - I just wondered what the new character animation tools are on maya 7 and if anyone's tried them and if they're any good?

I'm not gonna rush out and buy a copy, I was just kinda interested really because I read they brought a load of tools in from Motion Builder.

Also, is Motion Builder any good?

thank you all

Motion Builder is super cool, but not worth the asking price... Well, not for me anyways.

Maya 7 has 'foot locking' or some sorta thing. You set where the ground plane is, and the feet never go under that spot, that's one of the things they have brought over from motionbulilder, not totally sure on the rest of the features tho!

Cheers for the info matey!

I love what time I've had with MotionBuilder so far, and any features from that is a super cool bonus to Maya.

I really wanna get my hands on it just to have a play around with it!
