EMotion FX Animation Gem

With the EMotion FX Animation gem, you can use the EMotion FX Animation Editor character animation system. The node-based system provides an intuitive approach to controlling character behavior from animation graphs. You can visually build hierarchal state machines and blend trees and use parameter controls for interactive testing. Character motion is controlled through motion extraction.

The character animation system includes tools for building the following:

  • Transition conditions

  • Blend spaces

  • Sync tracking

  • Motion events

  • Mirroring animation

  • Controllers

The Animation Editor is compatible with .fbx files and converts these files to the .actor and .motion formats.
