Can't find animations in Unity

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! So I've been animating using the free version of Spriter for only a few weeks so I'm still a bit new to the software but yesterday, my cousin (who is the programmer for our game) tried importing the folder in which my sprite and my Spriter project had been stored into Unity 2019.1. We used the SpriterDotNet plugin to get it into Unity and it seemed to get it pretty smoothly. We used the Youtube video on it to make sure we got everything right. But as soon as we imported it, we couldn't find where the animations were being stored. The pivots were all there and the animations obviously were being processed judging by the fact that as soon as we pressed player the animations began. But we looked everywhere through the scripts, through the layers, and almost every possible place and could find where the animations where being stored, therefore, we cant choose or really make the sprite doing anything. There is one thing that I found interesting. We downloaded the premade Spriter project (which can be found on the website) and as soon as we imported it, everything seemed to be completely fine. Everything was there. And my assumption is that the premade project was most likely made by the developers using Spriter Pro. Which brings me to the conclusion that this is an issue with the free version of Spriter and I now need to pay $60 for no good reason. Please help. Thank you so much!

Hi Seth,

Unfortunately I'm no expert, but hopefully I can help you get the attention of someone more experienced with using Unity and Spriter2Unity. I suggest you post directly in the thread dedicated to Spriter2Unity or at least rename this post's title to include "Spriter2Unity", and ideally post a screen recording showing your process and ask people if you're doing something wrong or if there's some kind of compatibility issue going on.

If no one else responds to you in a timely manner, you can zip up your Spriter project and email it to mike@brashmonkey.com and I can see if I can figure out how to get it to properly import and show up.

The only other thing I can think of at the moment is make sure you're not using any of the Spriter features in your animations that Spriter2Unity can not properly convert during import.

Also, sidenote: "upload" means to send something somewhere on the internet or at least to another computer, so your use of the word was causing me confusion at first.. you should likely edit your post and replace the word "upload" with "import".

cheers.

Okay, I'll ask my cousin to send a video and I'll attach that to my post. My bad for causing confusion, I've edited the post now :) Thanks again, Mike! 

Edit: Also am I doing this right? I have no idea how to use the posting system here. Did I reply to you or did I just make a new post that you can't see?
