Hi, I need some help with my player animation so far everything was good until I add an idle animation and when I press any direction to walk the player won’t change animation it’s stuck in an idle frame.

Code of the animation below

#Player Animation 

if (motion.length() > Speed_Idel*0.09):
	if (Input.is_action_pressed("ui_up")):
		Anim = "Walk_U"
if (Input.is_action_pressed("ui_down")):
		Anim = "walk_D"

if (Input.is_action_pressed("ui_left")):
	Anim = "walk_L"
if (Input.is_action_pressed("ui_right")):
		Anim = "walk_R"

# problem starts here the animation won't change back to walking just idle 
#Player walk in a idle state
	if (RayNode.get_rotation_degrees() == 180):
		Anim = "Idle _U"

if (RayNode.get_rotation_degrees() == 0):
		Anim = "Idle _D"

if (RayNode.get_rotation_degrees() ==-90):
		Anim = "Idle _L"
if (RayNode.get_rotation_degrees() ==90):
		Anim = "Idle _R"

if Anim != AnimNew:
	AnimNew = Anim

Is there a situation where you are pressing in a certain direction (left, for instance), and the function RayNode.get_rotation_degrees() keeps returning 180, 90, or some other value? Maybe look at what value is returned by RayNode.get_rotation_degrees() (i.e. turn on debugging, or use some breakpoints).

You probably need to put the idle part of the code before the walk part. And you can use match to shorten the idle part:

match RayNode.rotation_degrees:
		Anim = "Idle_U"
		Anim = "Idle_D"
		Anim = "Idle_L"
		Anim = "Idle_R"

# there's no need for parentheses ( ) around if boolean statements
if motion.length() > Speed_Idel*0.09:
	if Input.is_action_pressed("ui_up"):
		Anim = "Walk_U"
	elif Input.is_action_pressed("ui_down"):
		Anim = "walk_D"
	elif Input.is_action_pressed("ui_left"):
		Anim = "walk_L"
	elif Input.is_action_pressed("ui_right"):
		Anim = "walk_R"

if Anim != AnimNew:
    AnimNew = Anim
