Boston Unity Meetup: Introducing the Unity 2D Animation & IK Tools

18:30 - 20:30 February 26, 2020 in Cambridge, United States

Hi BUG! This month we are pleased to welcome back Ashley Alicea from Unity, who will be introduce the Unity 2D Animation and IK packages for the latest Unity Editor release, 2019.3

Dive into the workflows behind Unity's packages for 2D Animation and Inverse Kinematics. Starting with a PSD file, we'll review the steps for getting your 2D sprites game-ready with rigging, painted bone weights, skeletal animation, and IK – all within the Unity editor.

After ten years as an indie developer and organizer of events for fellow game creators, Ashley Alicea joined Unity as an Evangelist for the Americas. She now spends her days empowering creators across the western hemisphere with the knowledge and skills they need to create games, films, and interactive media. Her past roles at Global Game Jam, IndieCade, and Games For Change have made her a passionate advocate of democratizing game development - a mission she proudly continues at Unity.
