I am very inexperienced so if the solution is simple no hate please. I am trying to add more keyframes but it says: F-Curve with path= 'location'(2) cannot be keyframed. Ensure it is not locked or sampled. Also, try removing F-Modifiers.

I have no idea what this means. Can someone please explain it to me? I'd greatly appreciate it thank you for your time.

  • $\begingroup$ Could you add more information about what are you trying to achieve? Your scene setup, relations between objects, properties you can't keyframe... $\endgroup$ – Carlo Aug 22 '15 at 9:43
  • $\begingroup$ Please edit your question showing the context in which this is happening. A .blend file to inspect would be the easiest way to find out what's going on. $\endgroup$ – user1853 Aug 22 '15 at 15:36
  • $\begingroup$ I don't know what it means, but you can 'solve' the issue by right clicking on the 'animation' data in the Outliner, right click and select 'Clear Animation Data'. $\endgroup$ – Jacco Dec 2 '18 at 20:05

In the Animation layout there is a "Dope Sheet" and summary. I resolved this problem by unchecking the lock icon.

enter image description here

This was my error:

RuntimeError: Error: F-Curve with path 'scale[2]' cannot be keyframed, ensure that it is not locked or sampled, and try removing F-Modifiers

After turning the lock icon off it works!
