Here's an example of a basic workflow that beginners can use:

  1. Load a map.
  2. Set a scene camera.
  3. Record gameplay into one master shot.
  4. Divide the master shot into as many individual shots as you want.
  5. Add objects to individual shots.
  6. Position and animate your objects.
  7. Add sounds, including dialog.
  8. Create any lip-sync you want for your characters.
  9. Add lights.
  10. Add visual effects.
  11. Make your final modifications.
  12. Export your 3D session as a 2D movie (or still image).
