Hi. So I know how to animate character. Keyframes, puppet tool, parenting etc.
But what after that? What if I have whole animation planned, and at first character walks for a while, and then he does something different.

I don't want to do his walk cycle step by step so I make walk cycle precomp. Then I put this precomp to new composition and change position of the precomp to make him walk. But after that I want him to do something different, let's say wave his hands or something.

How do you do something like that? Can I make different precomps for different kinds of movements (standing, walk, run, waving) and change between them? (Something like actions in Blender?)

Thank you for answers!
(and I'm pretty new to AE so please exaplain in details :))
