Create animations that you think will be needed and useful to other creators.

Ease Of Use
Make it as easy as possible for other creators to apply animations to objects or players.

Object Animations

Curves are a new powerful way to animate 3D objects in the game. Curves allow for very complex animations, in a relatively simple manner.

Animating objects in the game world can make a game feel alive. Examples include such things as small idle movements of machines, flags or signs moving in the wind, trees swaying, balloons floating, boats bobbing in the water, or moving objects along a path.

  • Idle Animations
  • Motorized Movement
  • Wind Movement
  • Water Movement
  • Path Movement
  • Pet Movement

Player Animations

IK Animations are Core’s new system for modifying player animations. Creators can add IK anchors points for a character to grab and animate anchors to create entirely new animations.

With the new IK animation system, player animations can now be customized. There are many types of new animations that you can create with this system.

  • New Emotes
  • Idle Animations
  • Victory or Taunt Animations
  • Weapon or Armor Use
  • Climbing Animations
  • Common Activities

Helpful Resources


  • Create a minimum of 10 animations of your own design.

  • Include examples that demonstrate each of the animations.
