# “Record” doesn't create keyframes

I'm just a beginner with animations in Blender, but how my teacher showed me is that you can click on the "Record" button, place your object, turn "record" off, move the object, hit record again to create keyframes, turn off Record", etc.

I've done it a few times successfully, but the new animation I'm working on doesn't create keyframes:

Object in position 1

I turn "Record" on and move the object:

But no keyframes were created!

• you are in edit mode, that recorder works in object mode, since keyframes era created for objects. if you need to change the "shape" ogf the object, you need to learn to use shapekeys (and you can animate them too) – m.ardito Nov 11 '15 at 9:13
• The record button is a toggle for automatic keyframe insertion, it is not meant to be clicked on/off to insert keyframes. To insert keyframe in object-mode use the I hotkey. – Jaroslav Jerryno Novotny Nov 11 '15 at 9:54
• the record button may work also in that way, but just does not work in the edit mode... – m.ardito Nov 11 '15 at 10:21
• @m.ardito you gave a good answer, make it so that I can accept it! Also, thanks :) – MicroMachine Nov 14 '15 at 2:18
