Unique animation feature- Smart Motion Retargeting
With Smart Motion Retargeting, users can adapt motion files with different body shapes from the motion library, even fine-tune the character’s stride or alter its motion genre. Smart Motion Retargeting translates motions automatically to various character styles with different body scale.
