Animation Toolbox

All the tools necessary for animating your models are accessible through the Animation toolbox.

Each tool in the Animation toolbox also is a member of a “child” toolbox. When you point to a tool and hold down the left mouse button, a drop-down menu opens from which you can select tools in the child toolbox. You can also open the child toolbox as a floating toolbox by choosing Open As Toolbox from the drop-down menu.

When you select a tool in the child toolbox, it automatically becomes the “representative” of the child toolbox in the Animation toolbox.

The following table shows the “as delivered” arrangement of the Animation toolbox. Where appropriate, it identifies the corresponding child toolbox and, for each, the default representative tool.

Note: All tools in a toolbox are not always visible by default. To see all tools, right-click in the toolbox and select Show All from the menu.
