Entity Nodes

Lumberyard Editor uses entity nodes to communicate with the track view system. You can create entity nodes using the following steps.

To add a legacy entity node in the Track View editor

  1. In Lumberyard Editor, select a legacy entity in the viewport and then click Tools, Track View.

  2. In the Track View editor, create an object entity sequence (legacy) if one does not yet exist. To do so, click the Add New Sequence icon next to Sequence/Node in the toolbar. In the Add New Sequence dialog box, choose Object Entity Sequence (Legacy) from the drop-down list.

  3. Right-click the sequence (top node) or Director node, and choose Add Selected Entity(s).

  4. In the left pane, under the track name, select to highlight each animation track. To add AnimObject tracks, see Animated Character Tracks in Cutscenes.
