Animation Update
« on: December 20, 2016, 03:24:39 PM »
Hey,

I have an animation with 100 keyframes.
The animation is the liquid inside of a test tube.

I want to control it using a float variable called 'potion'.

So if I add +5 to 'potion' it will animate through keyframe 0-5
and if I add another +20 it will animate through keyframe 6-25
So basically it will play a smooth animation.

I'd just like to know what actions I would need, and which script variable
should I link with the 'potion' variable.

Thanks

You could split the animation into separate clips for the frame ranges- then use the animator actions to play the animations.

If this adding of potions is defined by you like, add 5,10,15.. not randomly, you can try to use events on animations. If there its randomly you can try to use blend tree in animator.
