[SOLVED] AnimationFactory class – problem with AnimControl

I am trying to get the piece of code (see below) that demonstrates the use of AnimationFactory class in TestCinematic.java (teapot example) to work with an Ogre model that I made and imported from Maya. Unfortunately, I get an IllegalArgumentException exception (see below). Note that the very same code works fine when I use the teapot model rather than the my own, which is just a sphere made in Maya, converted to Ogre format using OgreMax and OgreCommandLineTools_1.7.2, and imported to JME using assetManager.loadModel().

Any ideas?

The code:

AnimationFactory factory = new AnimationFactory (duration, “Anim1”);

factory.addTimeTranslation(0, new Vector3f(0, 10, 10));

factory.addTimeTranslation(4, new Vector3f(10, 0, 40));

AnimControl control = new AnimControl();



AnimationTrack antr = new AnimationTrack(obj, “Anim1”);

cinematic.addCinematicEvent(timeInstant, antr);

The exception:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The animation Anim1 does not exist in this AnimControl

Maybe your obj spatial already has an AnimControl that gets created when loaded?

So you have 2 controls but then the anim is fetched on the wrong control

in that case instead of creating a new AnimControl do


AnimControl control = obj.getControl(AnimControl.class);



Yes, it was exactly that!!

Thanks nehon! :slight_smile:
