Hi guys! This is a beginner’s tutorial on how to Append. Appending it the process of putting one .blend file into another one for reasons such as making a movie. So let’s start:
- To start, I’ll just use a basic cube and my LEGO Microfigure Model. Click File>Append.
- Now, I browse to my Microfigure Model file and click on it. Now it comes up to a screen that has a list of things such as Lamps, Camera, Objects, Mesh. Select Object.
- Then select the parts of the model you want to append. I selected my rig, model, shield, and spear.
- As you can see, the model imported over the cube! To fix that, I use Layers. They are very helpful in times like this. To move the selected objects to another layer, press ‘M’ and press a layer on the box or press 1-0 on the number pad on the top of the keyboard. A good idea is to go to the layer you want to use before importing or appending a model.
Now you’ve appended a model to another model! That’s all folks!
