Motion (*.mtn) Open/Save

Objective

Motion is a native file format (*mtn) of CLO that saves Avatar movement information, and is used when recording Animation of Garments and Avatars. CLO provides Motion files for its default male and female Avatars, but Animation Data or Motion capture Data from third-party 3D solutions can be imported as COLLADA files, then extracted as a Motion file (*mtn) through this menu.
