Copies all data from the currently active clip into the target clip, for the selected objects.

bakeData is generally used to overwrite unwanted data modifications, copying the active clip data to the target clip (if the target clip is not specified then it bakes down to the next clip).

The command enables you to do restore to the character a previously saved state of animation data long after your levels of undo have run out.
