# Bringing in Multiple Animations of a Single Armature to Be Used For One Animation

I have created 3 animations using one rig in separate .blend files, a walk in place, run in place, and a simple front flip. If I were to create a new file with this rig in it, how would I go about importing the keyframes of each action into one file so I can chain them together? In the future, is it a big mistake to do the animating in separate files?

1. Goto File >> Append
4. Click on Action.
5. Select on the action you want to import, and click Append.
6. You should be able to load this action in the Dopesheet/NLA now. Note that this action won't update from the original file. If you wanted that, do the above, except clicking Append on the menu, click Link.
