Animating a Resource

To animate a resource, first click on the Resource button resource_icon.png in the Animate toolbar. This brings up the Resource Picture Placement Dialogue box. Click on the Identifier arrow to select the desired resource. Notice the pictures on the left for Idle, Busy, Inactive and Failed. You may delete any of these your model will not use.

To change the resource pictures, simply click on the picture you want to change, e.g., Idle, scroll through the pictures on the right (the Current Library) until you find the right picture. Click on that picture and then use the << button to copy the picture from the library into the Idle picture for the resource. You can repeat this for the other resource pictures if you want.

If the library doesn't have the pictures you want you can look through the other libraries by using the Open... button.

Animating a Resource

You can also edit the pictures by hand by double clicking on them.
