Organising content


(Rob Harris) #1

Hi,
Im pretty new to Hype and am creating a 30 sec animation - should I be organising my content into scenes and linking them to make my content more managable as currently my timeline layers are just stacking on top of each other and if I just continue im just going to have loads of layers and 1 long time line (which I imagine will be a pain to edit if the client wants to make some changes)?

thanks in advance

It really depends on what kind of project you’re working on. Sometimes timelines work well to manage slightly different content on a page that largely doesn’t change. When you find that your timeline is replacing a large chunk of the content on a scene, it might be time to move that timeline into its own scene.

If things start to overlap on you and it becomes hard to manage the ‘off scene’ content, new scenes can help make your life easier.
