public void AddMixingTransform(Transform mix, bool recursive = true);

Parameters

mixThe transform to animate.
recursiveWhether to also animate all children of the specified transform.

Description

Adds a transform which should be animated. This allows you to reduce the number of animations you have to create.

For example you might have a handwaving animation. You might want to play the hand waving animation on a idle character or on a walking character. Either you have to create 2 hand waving animations one for idle, one for walking. By using mixing the hand waving animation will have full control of the shoulder. But the lower body will not be affected by it, and continue playing the idle or walk animation. Thus you only need one hand waving animation.

If recursive is true all children of the mix transform will also be animated. If you don't call AddMixingTransform, all animation curves will be used.

using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class ExampleScript : MonoBehaviour { public Animation anim; public Transform shoulder;

void Start() { // Add mixing transform anim["wave_hand"].AddMixingTransform(shoulder); } }

Another example using a path:

using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class ExampleScript : MonoBehaviour { public Animation anim;

void Start() { // Adds a mixing transform using a path instead Transform mixTransform = transform.Find("root/upper_body/left_shoulder");

// Add mixing transform anim["wave_hand"].AddMixingTransform(mixTransform); } }
