    It is great to see you are starting off unity with the basics, when I first used it, I got totally lost in it, this is a great “foundation” that you are building here!

      Thanks, glad to hear! Basics are important, and even I, upon looking at other “basic” tutorials, still find little helpful tips/tricks that I somehow never knew…

    Hi Oa111- hmm, a couple of the usual “gotchas”:

    Make sure to…
    -Hit the red “record” button?
    -Place a keyframe at the starting position?
    -Place a keyframe at the moved positions?
    -save the animation?
    -apply the animation to the cube? (This is the most often forgotten- in fact, I think at the end of my tutorial, I realized I had forgotten it, and add it in there.)

    Hopefully one of those helps, otherwise let me know here, we’ll work it out! :)

    I freakin love these!!! I felt so good about myself when i made the objects with physics. I then made a domino test, and it worked great! I’m 14, and i’ve really been wanting to learn about this stuff, so thank you :) I used your blender tutorials a couple years ago, so im glad to have found these! Thanks again!

    Good tutorial.
    Is there a reason my inspector does not show in the animation window?
    I added the animation componet to the cube.
    The cube is selected and I cannot see any inspector like properties.
