    Hi All,

    Here is a node I created to Animate a character in BB3. I don't have any animated characters and this was the best freebie I found to try it out. If anyone has anything better please share with me :)

    I used blender to save the animation as a sequence of OBJ files and plugged all that in to my nodes. Don't be scared off by the links in the nodes, it is pretty simple to setup. In the example BBDOC I have the character attacking and then if you click it runs the die animation.

    If you want to try it I suggest your model be fairly low poly and your animations be pretty short.

    It might work and help people out until this is all built in to BB3.

    NOTE: I've not done any performance testing of this on any devices.

    Great stuff!

    Would be interesting to see performance on a device.

    This kind of goes to show though that FBX animation are a feature that people want and are sort of needed.

    @weboha 20 mins effort hooking up some nodes, once, and you’ve got your character animated. For now this isn’t too bad. I’ve done the work in the nodes

    Hey,
    I know this is a slightly old post but this seems amazing, have you tested to see how it runs on a mobile device yet in terms of performance because if it runs smoothly, I think this is the way forward for animations right now.
