    I'm a little confused. Is it possible to actually animate in Unity? Or is this "animation system" only for applying already made animations created in a different package?

    So the method to get an imported animation hooked up to a skinned mesh is......where exactly? I see lots of things, but this must be repeatedly slipping by me, having watched the tutorials about a half dozen times now and searched the forums with a dearth of search words. I've had to resort to randomly trying things in Unity to get my animations connected to my meshes: sometimes it happens to work, sometimes not. And forget trying to attach a new animation set to a model that already has an animation. I have yet to divine how that would work.
    (I'm not using Pro, nor Mecanim)

    Funny thing is, I've gotten animations to work on a Generic rig, no Mecanim. Ohwell.

    I am bit shocked and surprised that you guys have made it so hard to animate in Unity 5 compared to Unity 4. You want us to code our own editor(
    ) and then after that I see that the link for "beginner" tutorials starts at a different place. And then here you have to watch even longer lectures:http://unity3d.com/learn/tutorials/modules/beginner/5-tutorials that make things more complicated. And now the terms are different from Unity 4 regarding simple animation states? Whats the point?

    Is there a reference doc that separates the animation from pre-Unity 5 from Unity 5? Half the time I don't know which classes I should be using in my scripts, and when things don't work it makes it hard to even know whether I'm trying to use the right components together.

    Hi all, if I said i was a beginner that would be an understatement. I have finished the Roll a Ball tutorial and have made whole maps on the game Halo with the program 3d Max. I am looking into Unity to play a video of mine and have animated people come out of the scene as if they stepped out of thin air. I have a million miles to go to get this done however any input or thoughts on this would be welcome...right now I just started looking into importing the movie texture to see if I can get it in at all. I'm using the Free Personal Unity...and I'm sure I just broke forum protocol in some way, sorry..I never post.....Thanks

    My animation isn't working when I upload my 2D game to the app store. It's works on the standalone, but not the Android avenue.

    Hi people,

    I would like to know if any of you knows if there are a plan to improve the animation side of the program(there are some tools to do this, i know). I think that the people that we need create complex animations needs to have a better tool that Unity's have now.

    What do you think?

    Thanks and sorry for my english.

    So I'm looking at the Animations > Animating > Animation Properties tutorial. I have the Ethan character from the Stealth Game tutorial, but when I check "Import Animation" nothing happens. If I click "Apply", it just says "No animation data available in this model."

    I suspect there is a different version I'm supposed to download -- I notice that the tutorial video shows animations named "ethan_sneak2idle" and "Idle Jump a..." which I do not have.

    It's very difficult to follow along with tutorials when I don't know where to get the right versions of the files that go with them...
