Using Behaviors

When you select a behavior in the Library stack, a short description and preview of the
behavior appear in the preview area.

Note: To help you understand how each behavior works, the animated behavior previews
provide hints in the form of animation paths and color coding. Although most previews
are self-explanatory, the Parameter previews show before/after examples of the behavior’s
effect on an animated object, with the gear graphic turning red to show the object after
the behavior takes effect. For Simulation behaviors, the red gear graphic identifies the
object in a group with the applied selected behavior.
