and one more thing, how would i make it play a animation? i did this but nothing played.

wait(4)
local Player = script.Parent
Player.Archivable = true 
local PlayerClone = Player:Clone()
PlayerClone.Parent = game.Workspace
local FindPlayer = game.Workspace:WaitForChild(game.Players.LocalPlayer.Name)
local Humanoid = FindPlayer:WaitForChild("Humanoid")
local Anim = Humanoid:LoadAnimation(script:FindFirstChildOfClass("Animation"))
PlayerClone.HumanoidRootPart.CFrame = game.Workspace.Dummy.HumanoidRootPart.CFrame
wait(2)
Anim:Play()

Place the animation inside of the character. And do it in a normal script because the localscript wont run in workspace.

oh alright thanks ill do it and tell u what happens

Yeah make sure to add a wait before you do it so that you know that the character already spawned in.

so i clone the script and animation inside of the copy?

Make a new script and you will have to load the animation and play it there

i think i did it wrong, i cloned the script which has the animation inside of it to the cloned player then i Enable the script and nothing plays or prints

Local script

wait(4)

local Player = script.Parent

Player.Archivable = true 
local PlayerClone = Player:Clone()

local ScriptClone = script.AnimationPlayer
local ScriptCloneTO = ScriptClone:Clone()

ScriptCloneTO.Parent = PlayerClone
PlayerClone.Parent = game.Workspace
PlayerClone.HumanoidRootPart.CFrame = game.Workspace.Dummy.HumanoidRootPart.CFrame
PlayerClone:WaitForChild("AnimationPlayer").Disabled = false

script cloned inside ClonedPlayer

wait(8)
local animation = script:WaitForChild('Animation')
local humanoid = script.Parent:WaitForChild('Humanoid')
local dance = humanoid:LoadAnimation(animation)
dance:Play()

``` it enables itself once cloned inside the clonedplayer
