    so you see these parameters? The modify the animation live, so you can choose the best variation for your character before you download it.

    I want to do something similar in my game, since my toon can get fat, for example, during gameplay I want to do something like set a float value and have his arms widen on his idle animation.

    I have no idea how to even start with this.

    Help.

    Blend Trees are what you're looking for.

    Make a fat animation and a thin animation, then set up a float parameter to blend between them as necessary.

    Blend trees. All right, I'm going to look into it. Also, is it possible to "transition" between them? Like in the example? Have my arms gradually widen from thin position to fat position in sync with the float parameter?

    When you set the float, the blending goes immediately to that value. So setting "Fatness" to 0 would make you thin instantly. If you want it to happen gradually, you need to interpolate the value over time yourself.

    Oh, yes. I got that working correctly. My toon and its blendshapes are working perfectly. I'm talking about the animations proper. Like, if I set the float at 50, will the arms be halfway between animationThin and animationFat. Kind of a slider instead of a bool.

    Yes, that's exactly how it works.
