There are several ways you can import symbols in your scene.
When you import a symbol from the library to the Timeline view it is linked to the original symbol in the library. If you import a symbol into your scene several times in the Timeline view, they will all be linked to the original symbol. If you modify one, they will all be modified.
How to import a symbol in the Timeline view
- In the Library view, select the symbol you want to import.
- Drag the selected symbol to one of the following:
|| The Timeline view's left side to import it into the centre of the camera frame.
||The Camera view to place it at the location where you release your cursor.
NOTE: This may be useful if you saved a character's body parts as separate symbols. If you dropped them into the Timeline view, then they would all appear in the centre, haphazardly one on top of the other. It would be more efficient to arrange them into their correct places as you bring them into the scene.
