Animation doesn't play

Hi Unity users.

I have 3 animations.
The first animation is the Idle animation.
The second animation is the Walk animation.
The third animation is the Shoot animation.

Well, the Idle animation plays when the player doesn’t move. The the Walk animation plays when the Player is walking. But now when i press my left mouse button, the Shoot animation needs to play till i release the mouse button. So i got this script to make it possible. But it’s not working. The Shoot animation won’t play by left click.

function Start ()
   animation.wrapMode = WrapMode.Loop;

   animation["Shoot"].wrapMode = WrapMode.Once;

   animation["Shoot"].layer = 1;


function Update () {

   if (Mathf.Abs(Input.GetAxis("Vertical")) > 0.1)

   if (Input.GetMouseButtonDown (0))

Someone can help me please?

Thanks in advance. DonIlias "

i would make a new Java script like this:

function update () {

instead of “shoot” you can put any other animation

For animation.CrossFade("Shoot’) in the last few statements there, you are using Input.GetMouseButtonDown.

So the animation is played only when the mouse ‘click’ is detected because GetMouseButtonDown checks for click . Instead use Input.GetMouseButton, it checks whether the button is ‘held’ down and the animation is played untill mouse button is released.
