Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Action templates, part of Toon Boom Animate and Harmony Essential Training.
- In the previous video,…I showed you how to create a master template…so that you could reuse animation…made in one scene in another scene.…So here is another scene.…So if I want to reuse that animation,…I will have to open the library…or the folder on my hard drive where it's saved.…So let's right-click here and go Open Library.…And it's in our Exercise Files, Templates folder.…So let's select that and open it.…And here it is.…So I'm going to right-click on this and go right to Modify.…Here is the preview of the template.…
And it's a miniature scene in its own right.…It has its own folder and path,…just like a regular animate scene.…So I'm going to right-click here…and go View as Thumbnail.…So you can see all of your clips…as thumbnails if you want,…but I think we're gonna be putting a few in here,…so let's just keep it as a list.…Okay, so let's open this into the timeline.…Drag it onto the stage.…And we have an extra drawing layer down here…that was made for us.…Let's get rid of that. We don't need that.…So now we have the action.…
