Hello DevForum, I believe this topic has been coarsely discussed throughout the platform however, I have not seen my specific issue, which is why I thought it would be necessary to create my own topic.How would I import a custom mesh animation into roblox and have it actually work? My mesh has no armatures and therefore, no bones so I cant use pose mode and therefore, I cant use the RBXAnimations plugin. What should I do? I’ve been on this topic for several days.
[Bare in mind the actual animation is sort of trash, since it’s vfx which I’ll edit in Studio]
It seems that no one is able to resolve this, I have scoured the internet and yet to no avail.
something tells me that you should make an armature. i dont know what tells me that, i happen to be an animator but i also happen to live in a haunted environment
I did do that as well. I tried several different ways and that did not work. I made an armature, then I weighted the sphere to it via parent and automatic weights. It did not do anything. I also tried inserting an R6 rig as to pretend it is a humanoid.
i tried to do it for myself, so here’s an uncomprehensive video guide i just slapped together
i hope this helps!
You see, you animated it using the bones, I dont see how that would work for my animation… I tried it again just to see if I was being delusional however, it still fails to work.
once you place a bone, enter the weight editor and make it cover all of what you want to shift (i think)
You see, your animation involves changing sizes of instances. Which Roblox does not like for whatever reason.
I highly recommend you using scripts in order to achieve your result, because I do not think it is possible in your case.
Hmm okay, I’ll try tweening it…
Im not shifting though, Im scaling it. Im going to go ahead and attempt importing different parts of the mesh then Tweening them with Size.
i see your thought process.
thanks for your cooperation! we all tried, yet you didnt want to take the effort. i’ve been there, as i am a proper animator :)
I am not sure what you’re attempting to say? ‘proper’ animator, ‘you didn’t want to take the effort’, where are these backhanded insults coming from? DevForum is meant to be a positive and supportive environment and therefore, I won’t sully it with retorts. I appreciate that you made a video to help me however, it did not help and therefore, I have to seek alternatives. Unless you can show me that you have imported an animation similar to mine into roblox properly, then I don’t think your comments will be of help :). Thanks for your help though.
