AnimationPlayer

Inherits: AnimationMixer < Node < Object

A node used for animation playback.

Description

An animation player is used for general-purpose playback of animations. It contains a dictionary of AnimationLibrary resources and custom blend times between animation transitions.

Some methods and properties use a single key to reference an animation directly. These keys are formatted as the key for the library, followed by a forward slash, then the key for the animation within the library, for example "movement/run". If the library's key is an empty string (known as the default library), the forward slash is omitted, being the same key used by the library.

AnimationPlayer is better-suited than Tween for more complex animations, for example ones with non-trivial timings. It can also be used over Tween if the animation track editor is more convenient than doing it in code.

Updating the target properties of animations occurs at the process frame.

Signals

animation_changed ( StringName old_name, StringName new_name )

Emitted when a queued animation plays after the previous animation finished. See also queue.

Note: The signal is not emitted when the animation is changed via play or by an AnimationTree.


current_animation_changed ( String name )

Emitted when current_animation changes.

Property Descriptions

String assigned_animation

  • void set_assigned_animation ( String value )

  • String get_assigned_animation ( )

If playing, the current animation's key, otherwise, the animation last played. When set, this changes the animation, but will not play it unless already playing. See also current_animation.


String autoplay = ""

  • void set_autoplay ( String value )

  • String get_autoplay ( )

The key of the animation to play when the scene loads.


String current_animation = ""

  • void set_current_animation ( String value )

  • String get_current_animation ( )

The key of the currently playing animation. If no animation is playing, the property's value is an empty string. Changing this value does not restart the animation. See play for more information on playing animations.

Note: While this property appears in the Inspector, it's not meant to be edited, and it's not saved in the scene. This property is mainly used to get the currently playing animation, and internally for animation playback tracks. For more information, see Animation.


float current_animation_length

  • float get_current_animation_length ( )

The length (in seconds) of the currently playing animation.


float current_animation_position

  • float get_current_animation_position ( )

The position (in seconds) of the currently playing animation.


bool movie_quit_on_finish = false

  • void set_movie_quit_on_finish_enabled ( bool value )

  • bool is_movie_quit_on_finish_enabled ( )
