I’m creating an Oculus demo where there are some dummies walking around and I’d like to know if the method shown in this video (Basic AI Navigation) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KDazrBx6IY is the best or if I should just be using matinee. If I use matinee for walk cycles opposed to AI , am I saving resources?
The advantage of using the AI method is that it’s very fast to animate (just basically drop some waypoints), and by using matinee I can’t seem to make the feet “stick” to the floor. I have to spend a lot of time fine-tuning to make the feet feel coordinated with the actual speed.
The advantage of matinee is that I can simply drop the NPCs anywhere and they’re not bound to a navmesh.
