Character Animation Pipeline Tutorial: Making a playable character

Image The latest video in our Character Animation Pipeline tutorial series shows you how to make animations work on a playable character.

Roman Perezogin, one of our Junior Technical Designers, hosts the next chapter in our Character Animation Pipeline tutorial series. This video builds on the previous tutorials showing you how to reorient animations and explains how to take those animations and apply them to a character, making them playable. In less than ten minutes, you are guided step-by-step through the procedure, from setting up an engine solution, importing animations, changing code in Visual Studio to replace a default character with a new one, setting up Mannequin with new animations, and testing the final result – a playable character. You can find the written version here.

If you are new to the series, you can get up to speed with the following links:
