# Why won't my newly created animation play for an actual player? [SOLVED]

Edited 2 months ago

I am very very new to animating..but I'm currently trying my hand at it. This is kind of a two-parter, but only the second part is a necessity at this moment in time.

Part 1: As of right now, I have created an animation using both the character and a tool, exemplified here: https://gyazo.com/b5a98480f7b2d67e59773055a6354d87 (yes I know fairly primitive, but I'm new to animation) How it is set up in the dummy is there is a Motor6D with Part0 as the right hand and Part1 as the handle of the tool. There is no Motor6D in the tool. When I play the animation on a player model (not an actual player), only the arm moves, and not the tool. How would I make the tool move as well? As of right now I have only tried putting an identical Motor6D in the player model, to no avail.

Part 2: So I have my animation, and when I test it in a model of a player it plays. However, when I try it with an actual player, the animation doesn't play. Here's what I've written:

local player = game.Players.LocalPlayer
local character = player:WaitForChild("Character")

script.Parent.Equipped:Connect(function()
anim:Play()
print("played")
end)


It always prints that it was played, but never actually plays it. What is going wrong?

Edit 1: After a little more fooling around I've found that the animation is playing, but it doesn't actually show it when the tool is equipped? I'm even more confused now.

Edit 2: Realized I forgot to set its priority. Whoops. Still need help with Part 1 if anyone knows how to get the handle to animate with the arm.

Edit 3: I Figured it out. I ended up setting the actual Handle's transparency to 1 and creating a clone of the handle within a model rather than a tool, where the Motor6D connects the right hand and this fake handle. It played perfectly after that.

I seem to be learning more and more as I experiment.
