How to make cutscenes for your games?

Hey everyone, I have done a little bit of searching, and couldn't find an answer to my problem. Basically, all I was wondering is how you would make cutscenes for your games, I don't mind if the method is a unity based one, or one to do with generic unity software or whatever.

currently unity does not have any special tool to eas cutscene development and you should script it by hand. so in your code you should disable all user controls and don't respond to user input and move the camera, play animations and do movement and whatever you want as your cutscene. also you can create pre rendered videos in max or maya or ... and play them in unity if you have unity pro.

the animatino window might help you alot to create animatinos for camera movement and event driven animatinos with executing code for other stuff. then just play your animatinos in your cutscene code. if you don't know how to use the animatino window. joe robins has a good introduction to it in unite09 videos.

Check out the CutScene Editor at the Unity Asset Store. Or have a look at the online manual and tutorials.
