I've made numerous different animations for a wolf, making a different blender file for each. I've just learnt that I should have made them all in the same file and played the animations back to back. Could someone please tell me how to merge the files together or copy the animations across to one file. If I can't do this, could someone please break the news to me and tell me I can't so i can start over on the animations. Thanks :)


Go to File, Append. Choose a blend file, double click to open, then navigate to the Actions you want to append to the current blend file.

See the manual for more info.

  • $\begingroup$ I clicked append and clicked the armature actions but it can't notice any change, is there something i'm doing wrong? $\endgroup$ – Scythio Jun 7 '17 at 9:07
  • $\begingroup$ This just appends them to the current file. You'll notice they're loaded when you look at the Action Editor, and select an Armature. You can then select any of the loaded actions to apply to the Armature. $\endgroup$ – dr. Sybren Jun 7 '17 at 9:10
