Creating Walking Animations

In Design View select the Walk tab from the Direct Your Character Panel. Here you can use the Steps, Style and End sections to create walk animations.

Drag the cursor along the Steps bar to allow Amy to walk left or right, notice as you drag the cursor a transparent image of Amy will appear on the Canvas; this marks the End position after the walk animation.

In the Style tab you can choose how Amy will walk (Forward, Side-stepping or walking Backwards). Notice that each walking Style covers different distances as the size of the steps Amy takes differs (Amy takes smaller steps when side-stepping than when walking forward).

The End position is simply the position Amy takes after the walk animation; choose between facing left, the center or right.

Click the Play button to preview the animation on the Canvas, click the X icon to delete the animation or the Plus icon to add it to the Timeline.
