PROPS: how to use them

Please visit my website for more templates and guides!

Props are objects that are automatically “glued” onto a character’s hand to use for certain animations. You’ve probably wondered why there are animations that look like your character is holding an invisible object, like the animation drink. Well you need to add the cup prop to your character in order to use that animation to its fullest! Then once you are finished with that animation, you’ll have to remove that prop from your character (otherwise it will stay in your character’s hands forever).

To add a prop to a character:

@add Prop Name to CHARACTER

To remove the prop:

@remove Prop Name from CHARACTER

Is there any way to have a prop sitting in the scene not being held by a character?

1 Like

You would have to make it into an overlay and add it to the scene.

Do all the props show on the web previewer?

thank you

I had no idea there were that many hidden props. I guess it might be because they’re not ready, but it feels a bit deceiving to be honest. :slightly_frowning_face:
Thank you for sharing
