    Hi,

    So I've been stuck on this for a while, hoping to get some tips.
    I have an animation controller for this character's expression and would like to be able to assign a different animation to the face for each scene in the game.

    The setup: I have a 12 scene click adventure type game, each scene is a still image with some small animations, such as the character's faces - which blink and change expression from scene to scene.

    The problem: even when I attache the "happy" animation to the character inspector, it still plays the "sad" animation. It seems that unity is taking whichever animation is set to default in the animator, rather than the animation I assign in the inspector for each scene.
    This would not be such a big issue, but whatever I do in the animator ends up getting used as default in every scene.
    And if I delete an animation from the animator, Unity does not find when I try to select it from the inspector.

    So how do I make Unity use the animation assigned in the inspector?

    thanks!
