The Assemble animation makes a group of structural nodes or meshes assemble to their current positions. The starting positions are automatically computed away from the current positions.

Adding the animation#

First, select a group of structural nodes or meshes that you want to be assembled to their current position. If nothing is selected, then SAMSON will try to guess to what nodes the animation should be applied.

Then, double-click on the Assemble animation effect in the Animation panel of the Animator.

The selected nodes will be assembled between the two keyframes. Move the keyframes of the animation as needed.

The amplitude of the movement is computed automatically on the creation of the animation, to change it, inspect the animation.


You can always move the keyframes of the animation.


In the movie we use the Animation menu which is no longer present in SAMSON. You can access all animations via the Animation panel in the Animator (1) and all presentation actions via the Animator's controls.

  1. Interface > Animator, , : Ctrl+7, : Cmd+7


You can change the amplitude of the animation movement in the Inspector.

You can change how the parameters are interpolated between the frames by modifying the Easing curve.
