how to play 2d animation in the interactive approach template

  • Hi Samuel,

    You can use Behavior script to trigger an animation based on distance. See the guide on Behavior script here:

    And set up your Behavior like this:


    This will cause the image to start playing when distance between the image and camera becomes less than 250 (cm). 

    Make sure to disable "Always Play" on your texture, otherwise it will automatically start playing and looping when the Lens starts.

    You can also add another Behavior set up like this to make sure you texture jumps to frame 0 when the Lens starts, instead of the default which is the last frame of the animation.


    Let me know if you have any more questions!

  • Thank you so much! Is there any chance that this can also work on audio?

  • Yes, just set the Response Type to "Play Sound" and fill in either Audio Track, Audio Component, or both.
