  • Once the PERMISSION_OVERRIDE_ANIMATIONS permission is granted there may be no way to revoke it except from inside the script (for example, with a new llRequestPermissions call) or if the script is reset. Furthermore even if the script loses the permission (or is derezzed), it will not reset/revert the overridable animations.
    • For Viewer 3.6.7 and up: If the object is not attached to the permission granter but is in the same region, then Me>Movement>Stop Animating Me will revoke both PERMISSION_TRIGGER_ANIMATION and PERMISSION_OVERRIDE_ANIMATIONS (other permissions will remain). In this case, overrides are reset.
  • Once the PERMISSION_TRIGGER_ANIMATION permission is granted there may be no way to revoke it except from inside the script (for example, with a new llRequestPermissions call) or if the script is reset.
