anim is a section in the item definition file in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV. It is used to define standard map objects linked to an animation. Its format is almost exactly like standard map objects but with one additional parameter for the animation file. GTA IV added a section tanm that supports time controlled objects linked to animations.

Format

GTA San Andreas

anim
Id, ModelName, TxdName, AnimationName, DrawDistance, Flags
end
GTA San Andreas Identifier Type Description
A Id integer Unique object ID.
B ModelName string Name of the .dff model file without extension.
C TxdName string Name of the .txd texture dictionary without extension.
D AnimationName string Name of the .ifp animation file without extension.

Note that animated models still have static collisions. This means that the collision do not animate with the model since it does not contain bone information for the animation. If you want to move objects, you can do this using the script.
