I have about 30 objects which are keyframed. Is there a fast way way to delete all the animation data from all of them?


1 Answer 1


The fastest way I can think of:

  1. Select all the objects

  2. Press ⎈ Ctrl← Left arrow twice to get the the Animation screen.

  3. Hover over the dope sheet and select everything (A), then press ⌦ Delete.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks a lot Gandalf3! You really helped me. But somehow, when I selected all the objects in my 3d window, hovered the cursor over the dope sheet and pressed 'X' not all the animation data was deleted. I had to press 'A' in a dope sheet and then 'X' to get rid of all actions. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ In Blender 2.91 this seems only to work for visible objects. I select all objects (Outliner > A) then go either to the Timeline or to the Animation screen, press A and X followed by "Delete Keyframes". All visible keyframes are deleted, but the ones I made invisble by a keyframe are not shown and therefore not deleted. Is there a trick for 2.91? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Also make sure that 'Show Hidden' in the Dope Sheet is selected. $\endgroup$
