Rock climbing animations work in progress

In case someone are interested, im doing some tutorials on MotionBuilder showing how to create some basic animations for rockclimbing:

Input are welcome, either here or on my youtube channel.

WIP2 uploaded here with motions going to both sides and from all 3 idle states.

Next i’ll start finetuning positions and correct jitters and weird rotations + work on a dyno move (jump). I’ll also look into baking some hand grabbing into the animations since i don’t like to put the hand animation on using an additive layer. At first that seemed like a good idea, but after thinking about it some more, i hate those games where you have to do so much manual stuff that it takes away the joy of watching the action itself.

Anyway, let me know what you guys think. Any suggestions are welcome.
