Matinee & Cinematics


The Matinee animation tool provides the ability to animate the properties of actors over time, either to create dynamic gameplay or cinematic in-game sequences. The system is based on the use of specialized animation tracks which can have keyframes placed to set the values of certain properties of the actors in the level. The Matinee editor is similar to the non-linear editors used for video editing, making it familiar to video professionals.
