How do I play 2 animations with out stopping the previous 1? is it possible or am I missing something.

I have a player moving forward but when he is shooting the moving forward animation stops.


What do I do?

Hehe, you are asking the impossible. Is the computer smart enough to recognize the legs of your character should keep moving when you want the upper part of him to shoot? Of course not.

You will need to make another animation called 'move and shoot', or something.

Hey @a3tiger

You're luck today!

Read this two tutorials and you'll be able to do characters composed by multiple-parts.

yeah if your lookin to do somethin like that you need your character in different parts. Atleast a top and a bottom. Then they can be animated independently of each other

Thank you for your replies guys. I understand that 2 animations cannot be played at the same time But I think I was looking for the pin method. Thanks Tele and everyone else. I will try it soon or something cos I am gonna participate in ludum dare which starts in 1 day :)
