Adobe Animate Unity

This this game dev tutorial i will show how to bring animations from Adobe animate into Unity (flash to unity) using Texture packer. This workflow allows for sharp and fluid animations. Wishlist my game Blood And Mead on Steam.

Unity

The following process describes how you would export animation from Animate, either as a stand-alone movie file, like with After Effects and/or Premiere.

  1. Bilal here, and I first want to apologize for the length of this video, it ended up quite ranty, but the fundamental explanations are still there.
  2. Separately, you can use the free preset animations from Unity or purchase animation packages from the Unity Asset Store. Since this tutorial is about importing an animated character, we won't get into the specifics about Unity. Let's open Unity by starting a new project.
  3. Adobe Animate (formerly Adobe Flash Professional, Macromedia Flash, and FutureSplash Animator) is a multimedia authoring and computer animation program developed by Adobe Systems.

You can also export image sequences as line art, to paint in another program. You can then take the coloured sequence for further compositing.

Here is a list of examples that are covered in these notes:

  • To export an MP4 movie with H.264 compression
  • To export a SWF movie
  • To export a QuickTime movie with lossless compression, with the intention of compositing the file
  • To export an image sequence

To export an MP4 movie with H.264 compression

This file format that is best when it comes to submitting a piece as an assignment, to post on Moodle / Kaltura, and to upload to Vimeo or YouTube.

First of all, you should make a folder to contain the movie you’re about to export in your overall production folder.

Referring to the Main Menu, choose File > Export > Export Video / Media

Adobe Animate Unity

From the Export Video, enter the following:

  • Render Size: enter the values you intend to output. For example:
      • W: 1920 px
      • H: 1080 px
    • Leave unchecked “Ignore Stage Colour (Generate Alpha Channel).” An MP4 is compressed and therefore does not include a transparent layer.
  • Span:
    • You can select:
      • Entire Movie
      • Scene:you would select one, if you have established more than one
      • Time: if need be, here you can enter the [hh:mm:ss:mse] or hour, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds of the movie or scene
  • Format: select H.264
    • Preset: you can leave it as Default (AME – which stands for Adobe Media Encoder) or, from the pull-down menu, choose other compression settings such as High Quality, Vimeo, YouTube, and so on.
  • Output: click on the folder icon to then browse for the folder where you would like to export the MP4 to.
  • “Start Adobe Media Encoder Render Queue immediately,” check this box if you want to render the file right away. You might as well.
    • If you want to do fine-tuning with the Media Encoder, “uncheck” the box. The software will then open and come to the foreground. Notes about using features with the AME are here.

Finally, click Export.

To export a SWF movie

This is an ideal file for further compositing with After Effects. You won’t be able to import SWFs from Premiere.

First of all, you should make a folder to contain the movie you’re about to export in your overall production folder.

Referring to the Main Menu, choose File > Export > Export Movie.

From the Export Movie window, you should enter the following values:

  • Save As: Give the file a name, in lower-case letters without spaces in the name.
  • File Format: Choose “SWF Movie (*.swf).”
  • Press Save.

That’s all you have to do. It’s that simple.

To export a QuickTime movie with lossless compression, with the intention of compositing the file

First of all, you should make a folder to contain the movie you’re about to export in your overall production folder.

Referring to the Main Menu, choose File > Export > Export Video / Media.

From the Export Video, enter the following:

  • Render Size: enter the values you intend to output. For example:
      • W: 1920 px
      • H: 1080 px
    • Check “Ignore Stage Colour (Generate Alpha Channel)” That is, you will want to do this if the movie is meant to have a transparent layer. But, this wis the format and subsequent codec you would choose to pursue for transparent layers.
  • Span:
    • You can select:
      • Entire Movie
      • Scene:you would select one, if you have established more than one
      • Time: if need be, you enter the [hh:mm:ss:mse] or hour, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds of the movie or scene
  • Format: utilize the pull-down menu to select “QuickTime.”
    • Preset: again, this is when you would use the pull-down menu to select an option such as:
    • Apple ProRes 422 HQ
    • Apple ProRes 444 with alpha, if you intend to have a transparent area
  • Output: click on the folder icon to then browse for the folder where you would like to export the MP4 to.
  • “Start Adobe Media Encoder Render Queue immediately,” check this box if you want to render the file right away. You might as well.
    • If you want to do fine-tuning with the Media Encoder, “uncheck” the box. The software will then open and come to the foreground. Notes about using features with the AME are here.

Finally, click Export.

To export an image sequence

First of all, you should make a folder to contain the movie you’re about to export in your overall production folder.

Option 1

First, in your overall production folder, be sure to make a folder called <image_sequence>. This is where you will export final images from Animate. You will pass the folder to the next person in the line.

With Adobe Animate, referring to the Main Menu, go to File > Export > Export Video / Media.

From the Export Media Window:

Adobe Animate Cc

  • Render Size: Should correspond to what you have filmed, 1920 wide x 1080 high.
  • Span: Select “Scene 1.” If you have more than one scene, export images sequences by corresponding scene.
  • Either select “All Frames” or the “Frame Range” you want, from a particular frame to another.
  • Format: Use the pull-down menu to select: PNG.” Under Preset, choose “PNG Sequence (Match Source)”
  • Output: Click the Folder Icon:
    • Give the file a short name, in lower-case letters without spaces in the name (like, walk_seq_).
    • Browse the folders to find the image sequence directory in you main production folder.
  • Activate “Start Adobe Media Encoder Queue” immediately.

To conclude, click “Export.”

Option 2

Adobe Animate Tutorial

Referring to the Main Menu, choose File > Export > Export Movie. From the Export dialogue box, you should enter the following values:

Adobe Animate Unity Crack

Adobe Animate Unity
  • Save As: Give the file a short name, in lower-case letters without spaces in the name (like., walk_seq_).
  • Format: Choose “PNG Sequence.”
  • Press Save. The Export Settings will open once you press Save (which is opposite to the steps you would take with other, similar software, when you would enter the specifications and then save).
  • From the Export PNG dialogue box, enter these specifics:
    • Width and Height: Use the amount that you plan to use in Premiere or After Effects. Normally, these should be the same values as your Animate document (but you can change the size, which is addressed below).
    • Resolution: 72 dpi.
    • Include: Choose “Full Document Size” or “Minimum Image Area” (the latter meaning that Animate will include pretty much only the image content that you have been working with on the Stage).
    • Colours: 24 bit with alpha channel — this is IMPORTANT! If you do not choose “alpha channel,” you will not have transparent regions to use in After Effects Premiere, orPhotoshop.
    • Filter: None.
    • Make sure that “Smooth” is selected (and don’t select “Interlaced” or “Dither solid colours”).
  • Press OK. Flash will then export an image sequence.
