    I think more often than not you need both. You need to reduce existing keys to edit or remove some motion and you need to layer something on top. And the latter is done by adding controllers to individual joints. And then you always have to remember to activate the controller you want to work with. This is nothing new, but it's a lot of work.
    I could possibly add better support for animation layers, if there's an interest in this toolset. So far it had been minimal. I'm glad somebody is talking about more advanced features like animation layers.

    The "IK --> FK" button is what I was looking for here. These buttons could perhaps be named more clearly. I had to actually RTFM.
    Yeah, I might add a tooltip saying something like 'Snap IK to FK controls' etc..
    Sorry I made you read the manual...

    The "Apply" button remains disabled, is what I mean by "doesn't do anything".
    Looking at the code now - it seems that the only time Apply would not get enabled would be if the .mc file would not exist beside the .mi file, for some reason.
    Are you getting an error like this, by any chance: "ERROR: .MC file is missing for this motion. (...)" (in the Listener window) ?

    If that's not a case - please provide more details, like version of 3dsmax or ideally record a short video replicating this. Cheers!

    I think it's a pretty big ask for most to obtain and install and learn some of the basics of 3dsmax.

    Actually yes. OK, that makes sense.

    Yes, I'm aware. I wish I knew Blender, but I don't and don't have time to learn it as of now. Maybe in the future - who knows.

    However 3dsmax is kinda easier to obtain these days, than in the past with the Student and Indie licenses available. I'd guess there is a bunch of 3dsmax users in this community.
