Not really.
It's a process that takes quite a few steps.

Your character mesh needs to be rigged, bound, weighted, and posed in a T-pose.
The skeleton's hierarchy needs to be identical to the hierarchy of the walk cycle you downloaded.

Import the walk cycle (probably a .bvh).
Make the walk cycle a Motion clip (Animation / Add Motion Clip)
Drag the Motion Clip tag to the T-posed skeleton.

That's the basic principle.

It's not too hard to do, but the results depend a lot on the accuracy of the weighting,
which requires quite some skill and time.

There's good info on :

Have you posted this at c4dcafe? There is some really good character animators there.


i had to create a new account there (not sure what happened to my old one) so i have to wait for approval before i can search or post anything.
