3d Scripting Animation Problems

  • Hey Alessandro,

    Happy to hear you're pushing the boundaries of your Lens creating and utilizing our guides to help create your Lens. I see you followed the 3D object export guide for blender, but did you also follow the playing 3D animation guide?

  • Hi Kaitlyn,

         I followed the instructions in the guide and get this error: 

    Error: Argument 1: Value is not a number 

                                  at [anon] () native strict preventsyield

                                   at [anon] (play:16) preventsyield

    Any idea's what that means? Thanks so much for your help!

  • Hey Alessandro, it would appear that you didn't add your animation mixer to the script in the Inspector panel. Select the object you added your script to in the Objects panel. Then, in the Inspector panel, find the added PlayAnimation script. Your script will look something like this:

    Likely, the reason for the error is that Animation Mixer is set to "None". Double click the field and select an animation mixer in your project. Once you've done this, the script in the Inspector panel should now look something like this:

    Now, in the preview Panel, click refresh and your animation should now work. Hope that helps!
