NOTES, LIMITATIONS AND KNOWN ISSUES
Originally this mod was conceived to provide the animator with a flexible tool for creating new animations by merging elementary animations. Too bad, this has proven to be impossible because of the way the animation engine for puppets is implemented and work in Moviestorm: for Moviestorm every limb seems to be controlled by an unique entity in such a way that no two animations can be executed at the same time and merge seamlessly, even they don't drive the same bones, say the elbow, and shoulder bones. This is a real nuisance, which makes impossible the synthesis of complex animations from more simple ones.
Anyway, I've decided to make put this mod to the public domain, hoping it will be of any use to some user. However, for creating the animations included in this addon has been a very involved process, at this moment I have decided not to create the equivalent animations for the female puppet, unless a request for doing so is received from a number of users.
