Action Editor

The Action Editor allows you to associate an animation (a motion or a transformation) with an object. For example, you might create an action to have an object follow the mouse cursor. You might create a breathing action where an object expands and contracts as if breathing.

Add and edit actions associated with an object using the Action Editor dialog box.

This dialog box has five tabs:

Tab Description
Selection

Use the Selection tab to choose the action to edit.

Paths Use the Paths tab to choose the path type.
Transforms Use the Transforms tab to rotate, scale, or shade an object.
Timing Use the Timing tab to set how fast a movement or transform occurs.
Components Use the Components tab to dynamically change an object's image as it changes direction

Open the Action Editor by clicking Object --> Action in the main menu.
