Would it be possible for you to add 'Set' functions or maybe animation channels/blending (I imagine it would be no small task)?

This looks very interesting :) so what type of projects is this best suited for? and does this mean rag dolls can now be done with it?

Sorry for no answer, I had problems with my PC.

I think ragdolls are doable, but it's hell of a problem. Right now this thing can only attach actors to bones of non-animated skeletal meshes. The problem is that ReferenceSkeleton doesn't hold information of bone current position. I have to figure out, how anim sequences are stored.
