this is Alfred and I am currently making actions for my character on Blender.

It was made following online tutorial

I have already made one action and still want to make more

The actions of armature

And want to ask how to continue to make other actions for the same character and armature? Cuz I wish to import it to unity and want the file size be minimized, thx a lot for your reading and help!

You are currently workin in the dope sheet editor. To be able to work with multiple animations, you'll have to switch to the action editor.

Now create an animation by clicking the 'new' button.

When your first action is finished, don't forget to click the 'F' button next to your action name to save a 'fake-copy' so your animation doesn't get lost, because it is not the active action, when you reload/re-open your file.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank very much, I tried it but when I created it by action editor and create new animation, the new one will cover the old one, is there any way to avoid this? $\endgroup$ – chun ming lau Jan 12 '18 at 5:17
  • $\begingroup$ I think you can select all keyframes and copy paste them into your new action... $\endgroup$ – Bert VdB Jan 12 '18 at 9:27
