Initially I would like to be able to create a sideways walk cycle but I may want to do others later.

I've not seen a tutorial on that though. Is it something we can import into MS?

I need some dance sequences for the show tune scene and having a sideways walk option will simplify alot of the moves.

If its not something I'd be able to import could MS add that?

Left foot moves in front and over right foot then right foot moves in back and around left foot for left to right walking, then right foot moves in front and over left foot and left foot moves in back and around right foot for for left walking.

Pretty much everything is upper body and walking. The walking is the hardest part if I need to key it for every single upper body animation.
