Very basic animation

13 December 2015 06:19 #5839
Hi,

First time user here.
I have a very very simple blender model with a simple animation: A spinning DNA and some text fading in (plus a snake).

When I export my model to the SDK server several things happen:
The objects are not on their place.
The animation is completely ignored.

I am totally convinced that I am doing a very basic mistake, but I am totally lost as to what I am doing wrong. Any ideas? Are blender animations available in blend4web? why could objects not have a correct placement?

Thanks!

Hello and welcome to our forum! :)

I think you didn't turn animation ON and objects' scaling may be wrong. To turn animation ON, select your object and press Apply Default Animation in Animation panel under the Object tab.

And to fix scaling select all your meshes and press CTRL+a -> Scaling.

If it still won't work, send please your file, we'll take a look

Dear Pavel, where to exactly find this option "Apply Default Animation" in Blender 2.77 please? I'm still having problems understanding how a functioning animation in Blender can be exported for the web using blend4web (shame on me)?

Here it is! Under object tab, Animation toolbar.



Make sure you choose Blend4Web Engine first.

Dear Pavel,

Thank you very much for this clear and illustrated example. Could you tell me where to "choose" the Blend4Web Engine first please? I guess, the lack of having that Engine chosen results in the animation toolbar not being visible/existent under the object tab currently.

Many thanks!
