Ability Animation in Object Editor

A little rumour tells me I can set the required animation to play through Object Editor.

Could somoene please explain to me how I do this?

As atm I use this...

Trigger:
  • Ability
    • Events
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Wait 0.01 seconds
      • Custom script: call SetUnitAnimationByIndex(UNIT, ANIMATIONNUMBER)


My guess is it's Art - Animation Names.

But what do I put in there?

Thankyou. Works a treat :)

EDIT: Is the same for Animations like "Attack - 2"

Ive set it up like

Attack
2

Is this correct? As it doesn't seem to be working for me :(

You can use the function
Trigger:
  • Animation - Play Soldier 0000 <gen>'s attack animation, using only Rare animations

But you will not be able to play all the animations, like Attack 1 attack 2 attack 3.
For this the only option is to use Jass into a custom script

Hey Listen!!
Animations with number on it, like:


Attack 1
Attack 2
Attack 3

or

Spell - 1
Spell - 2
Spell - 3

Is like variation of animation, you can't play it directly without [ljass]SetUnitAnimationByIndex[/ljass]

lol like i said, in a circle
and yes i knew that laiev, just a typo

there may be a system for changing the animation index of a unit for casts easily

I was just looking for short cuts. I'm happy to carry on using the custom script. As the model i'm using is Grabers Villager255 model. And as anyone who uses that model knows. He has 255 different animations. And they are all variations.

Swim, fishies. Swim through the veil of steel.
You can still use the first animations, like Attack Morph - 1 and Stand Defend - 1.
