I have a popup that brings up using the popup function, but I want it to animate it when it comes up with like a fade in or something like that.
I tried to put an animationplayer on it and make it autoplay but it’s not working, the only idea I have rn is using a script like this:


But I wanna know if there is anything integrated within the engine that simplifies this method?
Any help is appreciated!

If you want to make the popup fade in, you can interpolate the alpha value from 0.0 to 1.0.

  1. Add a Tween node to your popup.
  2. Connect the about_to_show() signal to your popup node
  3. In the connected method _on_MyPopUp_about_to_show, add the interpolation to your tween: tween.interpolate_property(self, "modulate:a", 0.0, 1.0, 0.3, Tween.TRANS_LINEAR, Tween.EASE_IN)
  4. Start the interpolation with tween.start()
