Detect if Animation is playing

Recommended Posts

I'd like to detect if the animation is being played back in the viewport so the rig hides the controllers. Preferabably through xpresso, but i wouldn't mind using a python or coffee node.

Fairly simple with a Python node in Xpresso.


What you are looking for is the  "c4d.CheckIsRunning(c4d.CHECKISRUNNING_ANIMATIONRUNNING" command.


Then its basically just an "if" statement with that command. Output a boole type in your enable or visibility input of what you want to hide.


I have added a file.
