This section covers features about the many techniques and tools used for nonlinear animation in Autodesk® Softimage®. Nonlinear animation is a way of animating that does not restrict you to a fixed time frame. You can store different types of animation, shapes, images, and caches into packages called sources, then load this package in the animation mixer.
You can also use the animation mixer for other types of data:
• Shape animation — see[ ].
• Animation layers — see[ ]
• Cached animation and simulation sources — see[ ]
• Image Clips — see[ ]
