- [Narrator] Animation layers let us create…many different independent sets of key frames for parameters…such as object position.…We can mix and match these collections of key frames…in interesting and useful ways.…Animation layers let us easily create multiple versions…or takes of a single animation in the same scene files.…We can also stack animation data, combining the effects…of multiple sets of key frames to create…what is known as, quote, layered, unquote, animation.…
We can layer animation over other animation…on the same parameter.…We can also layer animation from different parameters…to create compound motion.…In this example, we will create separate animation takes…on the X axis, or the side to side movement…of the bouncing ball and combine that with Z axis animation…for the elevation of the ball, and we'll place…all of those on separate animation layers…so that we can enable or disable them at will.…
Animation layers are on a toolbar that can be accessed…from the animation menu.…Choose animation, animation layers.…
