Learn how to use the Animation Wizard to generate simple animations with a click of a button. First take a look at simply rotating around an object.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look at creating…our very first animation.…If we just wanna create a very simple animation…we can try to use to use the Animation Wizard.…It's just a very fast,…and easy way to generate some quite simple animations.…I go within my Motion Manager here,…and go to this icon here.…That's my Animation Wizard so I can just click on that.…And we have a couple of options…that the wizard can help us with.…All for fairly simple animations.…So if we just wanna do a simple rotation of the model,…or a explode,…or a…collapse,…something simple like that,…we can do really just with the click of a button…using the Animation Wizard here.…
