How to bake motion FX to keyframes? 2019年10月10日20:54

if you jump down into your motionfx chop network, you can find the chop that's exporting back to your animated parameters. its visible by having the orange export flag enabled, on the left side of the chop node. to bake this chop to keyframes, left click on it and navigate to ‘save’. from the ‘save’ submenu, you can select ‘edit data channels’. this will pop up the fit to keyframes dialog. if you set the fitting tolerance to 0 from the ‘fit panel’ and click ‘copy to export destination’, you will bake your motionfx to keyframes.

the export chop has the orange flag

hope this helps!
