# Play only one action at a time

When i make an action, push it, then make a new one, the keyframes from the other actions are still playing, and blending with the new one, how could i play only the new one?

Mute the NLA

Can mute the entire NLA stack using toggle, as shown in image, or via scripting by setting the object's animation data use_nla property. When muted will only evaluate the active action. I call this the one in the "slot", that displays keyframes in action editor / dope sheet.

>>> C.object.animation_data.use_nla
True

>>> C.object.animation_data.use_nla = False
>>> C.object.animation_data.use_nla
False


A muted NLA stack is a convenient way to store actions with an association to their target object, mesh, shape etc.

Note also: NLA tracks can be muted individually via the similar mute button on each track.
