In this video, learn about importing pre-animated characters into the 3D scene.
- [Instructor] Now let's import some animated characters…that I've already created for this scene.…Just a quick note too, I color coded these layers,…green, blue, and sandstone so it'd be easier…to differentiate as the layers begin to populate…in the timeline, and the other thing, just a quick note,…is that I scaled down all the buildings by about 66%…just to fit them in the stage a bit more.…Depending on how you set up your stage,…if you follow me along, you may have gone with 100%…and that's fine.…
If you do that then some other percentage numbers…I'm giving out might be different if you have your own file…so don't worry about that, just play around…and don't be afraid to make your own adjustments,…scales, and so on.…Okay so now let's import the characters that I've created…so I'm gonna close that PNG folder and double-click…in this space.…We want to go into 03_02 import characters…and import the robot SWF and we want to import…the PNG sequence of the walk cycle.…
And this is a sequence of eight animation frames…
