In this in-depth tutorial, Mixamo will guide you through creating a functional scene with root motion and will use several animation methods with Mecanim. This tutorial will also focus on the theory and C# examples that are designed to be implemented in a variety of ways.
This guide has a free Unity demo scene with characters, animations and the completed C# script for you to follow along with or customise to your needs. You can download the demo here.
