Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Master templates, part of Toon Boom Animate and Harmony Essential Training.
- Now I'm gonna show you how to make a master template.…And we do this if we want to save an animation…or an object with another scene.…This is how we move files or artwork between projects.…So let's collapse all of these.…It's important that you have everything saved under a peg,…so everything is embedded under this peg layer.…Collapse all of that.…And we'll hit the first keyframe…and hit F6 just to be on the safe side,…so we set keys for all of our vertical columns,…so that will set the z-depths…and once this is done to make a master template…we need to open up a folder for it.…
So you could save it in the default Animate Library folder,…but I think it's good practice…to get used to opening your own.…Now a Library is basically a folder on your hard drive,…so let's open one that I've already made…in the Exercise Files folder,…there's a folder called templates, so we Select that.…And once in there we can save all of our templates to that.…And you can organize it with subfolders,…so if you roll over it you will see the directory path…
