With your actor driving the animation in your scene, you can now record data into Motionbuilder following these steps:

  1. Make sure the Recording checkbox is checked in the General Controls section. (At navigator panel, under device --> OM device)
  2. In the Transport Controls View, click the record button

  3. A message box will pop up asking whether you would like to create a new take or overwrite the current one. Choose the appropriate selection for your needs.
  4. When you are ready to start the actual record, hit the ‘play’ button.


To review your recording, make sure the ‘Live’ button is unchecked, or that your OM Device is offline. This allows the model binding to receive its motion data from the keyframes you have just recorded, as opposed to the live data from the server.

We do suggest you have multiple takes rather than a long 1 take, it's going to help you edit later and there will be fewer issues with the file size. Also please save your file often!!!
