I have an animation clip that I want to shorten the beginning and end 1 sec of (so that the turn alignment to get it rotated correctly happens faster). The animation clip is a MoCap, but I have as FBX so should be importable. How would I do this in uMotion Pro?

Watched the tutorials and think the answer might be to find the beginning and end keyframes for the rotation/position, delete everything between them and then move them closer together. (but that is what I thought would work with the standard unity editor, and couldn't get it to work.)

Hi,
thank you very much for your support request.

Watched the tutorials and think the answer might be to find the beginning and end keyframes for the rotation/position, delete everything between them and then move them closer together. 

The easiest way would be to use the "Crop" feature. Use the white arrows (that are shown in the time ruler of the Clip Editor) to select the part of the animation that you want to keep. Everything outside the arrows will then be deleted if you click on "Edit --> Crop to Playback".

If you want to increase/decrease the speed of a certain part of your animation, select all keys of that part (you can do this by selecting the "master" keys in the top row of the Clip Editor, they automatically select all keys at that frame). Then you can use the blue box handle displayed at the first and last selected keys (just like in Unity's Animation Window) to scale the key frames up or down. Hold the "r" key while dragging to enable "ripple" (i.e. other keys will be moved so that they are not overwritten when you increase the scale of the keys).

If you use the box handle to increase the scale of your selected key frames, that part of the animation is played slower. When decreasing the scale, it's played faster.

Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions.

Best regards,
Peter

Thanks Peter. That did exactly what I was looking to do.  However did not end up using that animation in my game since uMotion is so easy to use that I created one that works even better in it.  Thanks for such a great asset , really transforms how I worked to have such an easy to use animation tool.
