I'm having some problems with my motion mixer. I'm stringing together a long series of bip animations for export to a game engine to be later mixed in the engine. Problem I'm having is when I bring the bip file into the mixer, sometimes my feet wont stay planted, other times the root bip node changes position. Every time I check the actual bip file by loading it directly on the biped though its correct.

Any ideas what could be going on?

I'm using 3D Studio Max 9.

Does your feet planting and bip issue happen with every animation or just some of them?

This only occurs with some of them.  It almost seems to be random.

I had the same problem a while back... I don't recall the step-by-step I had to do to resolve it, but checking off the "Set lowest starting foot height ot Z = 0" helped on some of them.

Let me look up my old files and see if I can piece together exactly what I did.
