Roblox Animation With Armatures Won't Work

  1. What do you want to achieve? Keep it simple and clear!
    I want to animate this custom character which was imported from blender in Roblox.


  1. What is the issue? Include screenshots / videos if possible!
    From the image above, you can see that the StarterCharacter isn’t being animated. I am recieving an error:

‘Workspace.CentiDev.Torso:WaitForChild(“Right Shoulder”)’`
I am using the following script to animate which is placed in ServerScriptService:

		Character.Animate.walk.WalkAnim.AnimationId = "rbxassetid://6031964192"
		Character.Animate.idle.Animation1.AnimationId = "rbxassetid://6032098876"
		Character.Animate.idle.Animation2.AnimationId = "rbxassetid://6032098876"
  1. What solutions have you tried so far? Did you look for solutions on the Developer Hub?

I have searched far and wide yet I have not found and answers, I added Motor6D’s into my characters Torso and positioned them with a plugin because the default “Animate” script doesnt work without the Motor6D’s. I will include the file below along with the animation keyframes in my character. I also then removed the Motor6D’s because then the animation plugin wouldnt work with them.

Character.rbxl (37.4 KB)

Oh, and yes, it does have bones.



Have you figured out how to use it as a starter character? I’m trying to figure this out as well and this is like the only post I’ve seen that’s relevant. If you don’t know, sorry I don’t know either lol

Well I don’t know exactly how but make sure that your character is rigged and welded the character, put a humanoid in it and an animation controller (for good measure). I then named it “StarterCharacter” and put it in starterplayer.

I figured it out about 20 minutes ago, it actually started working I believe when I removed the animation controller, I have no idea why but it is working.
