Simple transform animations exported from C4D to fbx not animating in Lens Studio

  • can you share everything so can help you better 

    were you trying to make the dice move down? you could just script a cube in lense studio to do that

  • So the dice thing was just a simple animation I used to test how to import C4D animations into lensstudio. I've been trying to import this animation with C4D dynamics and haven't been having luck, burned in the keyframes and everything. The whole cube is just supposed to rotate and it's not animating in the program.

  • It looks like that's what I did already? Selected the tube under animation example in objects and the inspector already looked like that.
