Getting Started

Getting Started

The first step in making a victory animation is to create an animation using the Animation Editor. Later, you’ll hook it up with code to celebrate a player’s in-game accomplishment. That code will work in any game you’ve created.

Project Setup

Roblox Studio features a powerful, built-in Animation Editor that allows you to design and publish custom animations.

  1. Start or open a project in Roblox Studio.
  2. To animate, you’ll need to freely manipulate parts. To do this, go to the Model tab and make sure Rotate and Move snapping is turned off.
  1. To open the Animation Editor, go to PluginsAnimation Editor.
  1. To create player animations, a character rig is needed. In the Plugins tab, click on Build Rig. In the following pop-up, select any rig. Regardless of the rig you choose, your finalized animation can be used with any Roblox avatar.

Create a New Animation

  1. With the rig still selected, click back inside the Animation Editor window and type in a new animation name. Then, click Create.
  1. To animate, parts of the rig need to be added to the Animation Editor. Click the icon and pick Add All.

By default, the length of all new animations is set to one second (shown as 1:00). For instance, you may want to have a longer animation, such as a three second dance rather than a quick one second jump.

To get a different length, change the second box in the position indicator.
