How can I disable an Animator from the Animation in Unity?

The Animator enablement checkbox seems to be highlighted, which makes me believe that the enablement of the Animator is an animatable property itself. But whenever I try to animate it the enablement toggling just does not get recorded onto the animation line.

It feels like I am missing something here. If someone notices me doing something wrong, could you, please, point it out.

When you use the animation time-line, Unity will automatically disable the animator component, even if you aren't trying to modify it. Try implementing the animation and then seeing if it will work.

  • \$\begingroup\$ What does it even mean to implement an animation and see later if it works? I can clearly see that the Animator enablement property does not get added into an animation. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Make it so when the character dies, it plays the animation and see if the animator component gets disabled when it plays in the game. \$\endgroup\$
