MotionDesigner saves each motion to a different file. The file name is the Motion name-tab name.
Notes on the DA file
All motion-type are saved as a polynomial file-type, with their coefficients.
If the segment is a Traditional Motion-Law of the Harmonic Type, for example a Modified-Sinusoid, then:
The Blend-Points for the sub-segments are at the 'natural' positions within the Segment.
The Polynomial coefficients minimize the error between the actual Segment and the Polynomial Segment.
To review the Blend-Points of the sub-segments, you can Open and Append the DA motion after you save it.
