Choose from a variety of actions to illustrate your movie (e.g. waving, clapping, bowing, etc.), these can be used in the movie intro and end. For introductions you can use the Bow or Wave animations as greetings, Strong animations can be used for emphasis and Subtle animations can be used as 'filler' animations, to allow your character some movement when they are not performing actions, but still appear on screen. Farewell actions can be used to end your movie.

  1. Add
    Once you have chosen an Action, click Add to save it to the Timeline, where it can be adjusted to change its start and end times. If the Red Playhead is at the end of the Timeline, the animation will automatically extend the Timeline.
