Hi there! So what I am trying to achieve is a car animation will be played, and the animation is triggered by a script. The thing is, I animated the car with moon animator and was able to export the animation, but now I don’t exactly know how to trigger that animation in-game nor do I know the script on how to achieve this. Please note that I rigged the model, and used easy weld to create 5 “Motor6D” parts, all 4 of them being for the wheels and the last one being for the Body. The primary part of the car model itself is a part called “CarPart” which has one of the 5 Motor6D parts called Body. So what I’m basically asking for is a play animation for a vehicle, not a character model.
Never tried this before, BUT if you add a Humanoid in the car, you could add the Animator inside the Humanoid and LoadAnimation() on it.
Essentially, all animations will follow this very basic format, and then you expand from here based on how you want to execute animations
local animation = Instance.new("Animation") animation.AnimationId = animationID -- The rbxassetid typically local animationTrack = car:WaitForChild("AnimationController"):LoadAnimation(animation) animation:Play() -- If looped, call animation:Stop() when you want it to end
The only difference between this and a humanoid animation is, you have to insert an “AnimationController” Into the model, this takes the place of a humanoid (This can be added the same way you add a part in explorer)
I have been using AnimationControllers for a long time now, they are perfect for custom non-player rigs such as cars, catapults, creatures, etc.
Make the AnimationController a child of the car model itself, it takes the place of a Humanoid and must be placed like one.
And yes that should work to just instantly play the animation with no other activation, and go ahead and move "animation.AnimationID = " to the next line, and same with Animation:Play() That was my bad on formatting
- Other parts
I tried the fixed method but for some reason I’m getting a error message saying, “Invalid animation id: unknown AssetId protocol”
Animation.AnimationId = "rbxassetid://1434543" -- replace my numbers with your numbers
Yes it worked, but now it says Play is not a valid member of animation and by the way I had to change animation to Animation which fixed most of the errors.
Its AnimationTrack:Play(), I should have specified, still new to scripting support
