Softimage MOTOR (Motion Transformation) for Characters

Retargeting animation with the MOTOR tools allows you to transfer any type of animation between characters, regardless of their size or proportions.

Motion capture data is shared from one rig to another by means of retargeting with MOTOR. The rig structures are different sizes and have different elements, yet the same motion is applied to them both.
