How do I make a sword unsheathe animation?

I am very new to animation on Roblox and I was wondering how could I combine an animation model to a sword in the sheathe so I could animate them both together. Right now, even if I combine them together, the animation editor will only let me animate the model and not the sword in the sheathe along with it. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you!


Could you please elaborate? I don’t understand what you want. Do you want to rig the model to a dummy/rig?

The sheath is the thing you put the sword into when your not using it. It looks like this and it goes on your hip or back.

And yes, I want to rig the model to a dummy so I can animate them both because even if I attach the two, the editor only allows me to animate the dummy and not the sword and sheathe along with it. I hope this makes things more understandable.


Ok so do you want to rig the sheath to be attached to the sword but you can pull out the sword of the sheath?


Yeah, exactly

Take a look at this: How to animate Tool Parts (Guns, Knifes etc.)
Follow the steps shown here, then simply run the equip animation as soon as the player equips the sword.
