Using Motion Capture with Animation Layers


Jamie writes:

Motion Capture is something Blender doesn't do particularly well by default. Which is why there's a lot of tutorials out there with misinformation on how to it.

In this two part series we'll use the 'Animation Layers' addon and learn how to tweak our motion capture animation to our liking.

In part 1 we looked at the right way to set up motion capture in Blender through a process called 'retargetting'. Part 1 can be found here.
