I have a model with dozen animations, but only a few of them are "pushed down" to NLA tracks. How to export only NLA animations to GLB? I somehow managed to do it before, but not now :)

For example: there is a "Roll" animation (1st screenshot), and there is not a NLA track with this animation. But GLB file has the "Roll" animation.

many animations some animations in NLA tracks

This behavior changed between Blender 3.1 and Blender 3.2

In 3.1, only actions that are on NLA was exported. Lots of people asked a way to export all actions, whatever they are on NLA or not.

So, in 3.2, when a single armature is exported, all armature action are exported.

During the development, I asked myself (and other community members) if I need to have this under an option. I didn't any feedback. At end, this new behavior was published without the option to deactivate it.

Seems this is what you are looking for.

So, I just added this option, that will be included in Blender 3.3

You will be able to export only actions that are on NLA by disabled this option :

Note: At time of writing my answer, this code is not yet merged in Blender 3.3 alpha

Edit: This is now part of 3.3 alpha
