How Do I Get .json Animations From Blockbench

I'm making an animation for my mod and the player animations plugin said to get it as a .json animation and I don't know how to export it as a .json since it's not an option on my blockbench model is there anyway I can get it as a .json?

Minecraft accepts JSONā€¦

Minecraft accepts JSON animations by default, but that means JSON coding every individual movement, which is difficult and fairly limited- I'm not sure if blockbench supports exporting to this format. I recommend getting the 'Geckolib Animation Utils' plugin for blockbench, then installing the 'Nerdy's Geckolib Plugin' for MCreator. This will allow you to make much nicer animations in Blockbench, then use them for animated blocks, entities, armor, etc; in your mod. (Though your players will need to download the Geckolib library mod as a dependency, if they don't have it installed already.)
