SCRIPT – REMIXING TUTORIAL – “The Backflip”
Welcome to Looking Glass Remix Tutorial Step 1
Remixing in Looking Glass is when you take actions from another world to use in your world
So, let’s get started
First of all, you need to have your world open
And then, click on the “Remix” button on the top right of the screen
A new window opens with the worlds you can choose to remix
Scroll down to check the available worlds and choose your favorite
And click on the closed tab to see more worlds
To play the animation, just select it and click on the play button
When you finish choosing the world you want to remix, click on the button "Remix this..."
The remix window appears. Wait until it stops playing the scene.
Now it is your turn! When you are done, continue watching step 2
This is the Looking Glass Remix Tutorial Step 2
You are in the remix window with the selected world
On the left panel, there is a timeline for the animation
You can move the timeline back and forward to look at the available actions
You can also see the running actions in details below the animation
And the list with all of them on the right panel
So let’s capture Julia's backflip to remix with our world project
Click on the plus button (+) of the backflip action
And choose "Mark action as remix start".
There will be where my remixed actions will start.
As we want only this backflip to remix, click in the backflip action again
And choose "Mark action as remix end". This will be where my actions will end.
Now it is your turn! When you are done, continue watching step 3
This is the Looking Glass Remix Tutorial Step 3
As you have chosen the actions, so click on "Name Your Remix" button on the top
And a new windows appears
Write a name to the selected remix
And its description
Also write a name that represents what each actor did in the remixed animation
As we are not using any flamingo's action, I just call it "none"
Then let’s call Julia as “backfliper”
Click on the "Finish Capturing Action and Move On To Mixing In" button
A new window appears
Now you need to choose who will copy Julia and the Flamingo actions
Let's choose Tommy to do the backflip as Julia
Just click on Tommy's image to choose him
Then click on "Next" button to continue
Now you have to choose an actor for the flamingo
I will choose Tommy again
And then click on "Next"
Now check if the actores are correct
And the ADD_CODE caption is selected
Then, click on the "Finish" button.
We are back to our world window
And the remixed action is right there in yellow
Now we have to drag our action and drop it in the story panel
Now play it and enjoy your remixed animation!
