    Hi,

    Are curve Path animations supported? I have looked through the manual and I can’t find a definite answer.

    I’ve tried using my path animations in my puzzle but it doesn’t seem to recognize them. However, It does show the curve on the 3D model when I select sneak peak while on the last frame of my animation in Blender.

    Thanks in advance!

    No it’s not supported. You will need to bake to object animation or to groupf og shapekey animation. Look at this small tutorial.

    Thanks for the info.

    Unfortunately those options won’t work for me and that really messes up my workflow. Shape keys only make it really difficult to make it “grow” from point A to point B.

    I’m trying to a map and have paths to specific rooms animate from the entrance when someone clicks on the rooms. All of these were made using curves.

    I was able to make them into meshes and animate those using shape keys so they looked right in Blender (I did still needed to deform them with a curve modifier). However, the animations still won’t work with this method.

    I know it’s not the code, because tested it without the curve modifier and it plays fine (just the wrong shape).

    I’m not sure what to try now. Without a way to make these paths animate this way, I don’t know if I’ll be able to make this work.

    Any help would be really appreciated!

    Hi. Coun you provide any example with blend file you want to export to the engne? It’s will be better to isolate exactly the object you want to export not to send the whole scene.

    I’ve attached a file that shows the problem. I deleted everything out of the scene but what was necessary to show you my issue.

    The object (both the curve version and the mesh version) show up in Verge 3D ok. However, the animation does not. It won’t play the animation from the shape keys when the curve modifier is applied.

    Here’s an example for you made using shader animation.
