    Hello!

    I've struck into a, probably easy to fix issue.. but i can't find out what the hell to do.

    What i've done to remove the need to have two seperate objects with seperate textures, i animated only the door vertexes to follow along a Empty Object as simply just animating the vertexes diden't seem possible.

    The animation and all turned out great inside of blender, but importing this into Unity seems to have issues, could it be since the animation is actually based around another object?

    Blend File:

    Texture:

    (Yes, High resolution textures untill i get it into the game running, Planning to scale them down later. Also i did export into .fbx when importing to unity, uploading the .blend just for ease.)

    Unity doesn't like object based animations. Do it with armature/bone based animations and it will work.

    I don't know if vertex animation (Shape Keys right?) is good... It's better to do object or bones animation (you have benefits of IK constraints for instance).

    I had create a tutorial, how can you reuse the same animation for different game objects. I don't know if you guys find it useful but it won't hurt take a look, right?

    If you are bored to download have a look what it does.
    Good day to every one.
