Pause timeline and jump to scene

(Sam Bader) #1

After the animation has completed I would like the document to pause and then automatically move to the next scene.

Please could somebody direct me to how to do this or explain?


Libraries for simulating line drawing

(I’ve moved this to a new topic since it did not look like it was related to line drawing)

To jump to a different scene at a specific time, you can use a Timeline Action with the Jump to Scene action. This can be put at any time on a timeline, so you could put in some seconds after your last animation which would effectively appear as a pause.

(You can also have Timeline actions that pause the timeline, but it does not look like that is what you need in this case - and if you paused the timeline you’d need to trigger an alternative timeline with the jump to scene action, otherwise it would be forever paused!)

Thank you :slight_smile:

My query was with regard to how to do it as a part of the line drawing code ie. A snippet to pause the timeline and move to a scene as part of the script rather than on the timeline.

I’ve done a workaround now so not to worry but thanks anyway.
