Avatar Mask window

There are two ways to define which parts of your animation should be masked:

Humanoid body selection

If your animation uses a Humanoid Avatar, you can select or deselect portions of the simplified humanoid body diagram to indicate where to mask the animation:

The body diagram groups body parts into these portions:

  • Head
  • Left Arm
  • Right Arm
  • Left Hand
  • Right Hand
  • Left Leg
  • Right Leg
  • Root (denoted by the “shadow” under the feet)

To include animation from one of these body portions, click the Avatar diagram for that portion until it appears as green. To exclude animation, click the body portion until it appears red. To include or exclude all, double-click the empty space surrounding the Avatar.

You can also toggle Inverse Kinematics (IK) for hands and feet, which determines whether or not to include IK curves in animation blending.

Transform selection

Alternatively, if your animation does not use a Humanoid Avatar, or if you want more detailed control over which individual bones are masked, you can select or deselect portions of the Model’s hierarchy:

  1. Assign a reference to the Avatar whose transform you would like to mask.
  2. Click the Import Skeleton button. The hierarchy of the avatar appears in the inspector.
  3. You can check each bone in the hierarchy to use as your mask.

Los assets Mask pueden ser utilizados en los Animator Controllers, cuando especifiquen Animation Layers para aplicar el masking en tiempo de ejecución, o los ajustes de importación de sus archivos de animación para aplicar un masking durante la animación importada.

Un beneficio de utilizar Masks es que tienen a reducir la sobre-carga de memoria ya que las partes del cuerpo que no están activas no necesitan sus curvas de animación asociadas. También, las curvas sin utilizar necesitan ser calculadas durante la reproducción que va a tender a reducir la sobrecarga del CPU de la animación.
