Amazon Sumerian Hosts

A host is a asset provided by Sumerian that has built in animation, speech, and behavior for interacting with users. Use hosts to engage users in conversation and convey information.

To add a host to your scene

  1. Open a scene in the Sumerian editor.

  2. Choose Import assets.

  3. Choose one of the following hosts:

    • Cristine

    • Preston

    • Luke

  4. Choose Add.

  5. Drag the host entity from the assets panel onto the canvas.

All of a host's meshes, materials, animations, and scripts are bundled into a single entity with three configurable components:

  • Transform – The host's location relative to the scene or its parent entity.

  • Host – Animation and behavior settings.

  • Speech – Text-to-speech capability with Amazon Polly.

Models and animations for hosts are locked. You cannot modify or extend them.
