Amazon Sumerian Hosts

A host is an 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.
