Intro: This is a working comprehensive overview of animations in Xenoverse and where to find them. I'll update this in the future with any findings I have. Really fun stuff, I swear. Anything ending in ".cam.ean" is not an animation, it is the position of the game's internal camera for specific scene. I am yet to test if these can be swapped between the animation index. CAC skill animations are in /skills/, use this list to find the skill you want to edit.
