How to use the same character rig in the same scene on multiple backgrounds without looping the character rig's timeline? Is this even possible without having to make the scene with another background on a different file? To further explain the situation, I have a flash file that has a background and rig that transitions to another background and rig on a different layer and key frame but when I go back to the previous background and rig that rig's timeline repeats instead of letting you make a new time for that rig. Do I need multiple files?
In order to reuse assets in Animate you need to duplicate each symbol in the scene that will have new animation. So, copy and paste the scene on a new layer, right click on it and select Duplicate symbol, then double click inside the symbol and select each symbol that will change, so the background, and the rig and also select duplicate Symbol for those files as well. usually when I'm animating I don't use the main rig in scenes, I duplicate it as "Guy1_sc 1" and then place it in the scene so that way I am never using the master file. "Guy1_sc 2" is a different file. Also if you have lipsync and rigged the head separately you'll have to duplicate that as well for each scene so it is also unique. I hope this makes sense.
Thank you very much! That makes so much sense now. I'll be testing that now!
