Keying Set Failed to Insert Any keyframes

Hey I’m using Blender 2.83 and I was hoping someone from this fine forum could help me real quick with this problem. I have a few objects that are parented to one object and after I duplicated them and tried to set a keyframe by pressing “i” for the duplicated objects it says “keying set failed to insert any keyframes”. It’s not locked on the graph editor. Any help much appreciated! Thanks

Edit: And now even after deleting those duplicated objects and trying to set a keyframe on ANYTHING else it has the same keying set error…

Make sure you don’t have a keying set. If that doesn’t work, post a blend.

Thanks yeah I had to delete the keying set. I just couldn’t find where it was at first. Thanks for your help!

I’m having this error again and there aren’t any keying sets to delete this time. Is there anything else I could try?

Not sure if this is related to your problem, but do you have Only Insert Needed or Only Insert Available checked on in the global preferences by chance?

Post a blend if you can’t fix it. You can post one here and give us the URL.
