Mob Animation(and pls no geckolib cause its no longer in 2021)

How can i add custom animation in mcreator 2021.1(latest). Is there any way to make an animation triggered if it walk or die or attack or just idle animation. For example a mob is just standing and and the animation is this and the mob starts walking and the animation is this etc. is there a way to do that and what are the code for animations in mcreator?

sorry, i can't really help much, but I'm here to say that it's because the GeckoLib plugin still doesn't support the MCreator 2021.1 snapshots, as no newer versions of the plugin have been developed for those MCreator versions (and idk if there ever will). but it would be great if it did! (which I and maybe plenty of others too are looking forward to, as the full 2021.1 version is just right around the corner)

also, if it interests you, then you may take a look at this one old forum topic of mine where I asked the same thing: https://mcreator.net/forum/67092/how-make-complex-animations-custom-mobs and take a glimpse at the process of making custom animations through Java code.

I hope someone will make a new Geckolib plugin for new MCreator/Minecraft versions in the future

nah, I don't think outdated tutorials would work, as the way of rendering & animating Java entity models has changed throughout updates afaik. (plus, the code structure for mob models alone has changed too; you can't just use them for newer versions that have different methods, coz otherwise, you'll only get errors.) for example, you can't use the ones from 1.12 for 1.14, just as the ones for 1.14 also wouldn't work for 1.15+, and vice versa. 

btw, if you're still a beginner to Java, then there's probably no pain in learning it. I mean, animating entities might be more complicated than just using simple lines of Java code here & there and calling it a day (even I am still not that good at animating entities), but knowing the syntax, how variables work, and everything else about Java will help you read Java code better. there are plenty of Java tutorial videos and playlists for beginners on YouTube, check them out!
