Channel Entry DataEdit

You can define up to 10 different channels of motion for BOIDs. Motion is applied to all BOIDs.

Note Icon

Note: Each channel controls one aspect of a BOID's motion. This can be by moving different parts of the BOID (e.g., different bones), or it can be moving the same parts in different ways (e.g., translating in the X axis, rotating in the Z axis, scaling in the Y axis). Each modification requires a channel.
