Animation View Guide

The Animation View in Unity 2.6 allows you create and modify Animation Clips directly inside Unity. It is meant to be a powerful and easy tool that can supplement external 3D animation programs or even be used instead. It is great for creating simple Animation Clips, and has the added benefits of being able to animate variables of materials and components, and add Animation Events to Animation Clips that can call script functions at specific points in time.

For information about animating characters or importing animations see the Character Animation section.

This Animation View Guide is broken up into different pages that focus on different areas of the Animation View itself. Please visit the following pages to build comprehensive knowledge about using the Animation View.
