This free add-on adds Additive Animation Layers to Blender, using the NLA Editor.

What layers allow you to do, is create simple "offset" animations on top of previous animations.
Without using layers, if you want to make changes to an animation, you would have to repeat changes for almost all the keyframes

Here's a video showing Additive animation layers with this add-on:

And here's an example of what would happen if you tried the same process without it:

    Wow! This is pretty awesome! I can see how this would be extremely useful. I love doing things in layers. Less... destructive. I'm also interested in the character model you are using. Is that available online as well?

  2. Getting videos from Outbrain. One tells me how I can save my skin. Something is wrong. FYI. Keep up the great work. Love the site.
