Animations array empty on GLTF from examples

Hi, I’m trying to setup an animated GLTF model, but it seems that the animations array of the model is empty at first I thought it was an issue with my model but after I tried the Xbot model from three js sources it seems that the animations array is still empty.
As it run in the example I wonder what I’m doing wrong.

import { GLTFLoader } from "three/examples/jsm/loaders/GLTFLoader";
const loader = new GLTFLoader();
loader.load("Xbot.glb", (gltf) => {
  console.log(gltf.animations); // EMPTY
});

GLTFLoader returns animations attached to the root gltf.animations object. If that array is empty, the model does not contain any animation.

In the screenshot you show several other empty animations: [] arrays, attached to some THREE.Group and THREE.Object3D instances. GLTFLoader does not use those arrays, and they will always be empty when loading a glTF file. So you only need to check the root gltf.animations list.

Oh my god Im so stupid, okay I get it. Thanks.
For some reason I’ve setted my loader to return the .scene object of the gltf but animations are in the root of the gltf.

Thanks a lot.
