Getting an Animation from another Model

Hey guys, I was wondering if there was a way to get an animation from another model. Like say I have one model with a walking animation only, but another model has an Idle and I want to use that Idle as well. Is there a way to do such a thing? Some people have said to find that object’s tag and then be able to have access to that animation.

With the new Mecanim avatar system, you should be able to use any animation from one humanoid on another humanoid and get similar results. If you want to match up more body parts, you can use Avatar Masks to tell Mecanim to use certain bones. Your bone names will need to match, though, and I believe they need the same heirarchy.

To use one model’s animation in another model’s animator, simply use it in the proper Animation Controller.
