reversing KEYFRAMES

Post by jakob polack » Tue Aug 23, 2005 5:04 pm

hi there -

Its absurd....if MOHO cant reverse a bunch of keyframes...can it ....
please tell me if I have overlooked something

I want to reverse keyframes in the timeline, so that i can mark up say 10 keyframes, copy them - paste them further on in the timeline, and then reverse them so i can get from neutral to extreme and back to neutral again easily.......


it has to be there.... if not , IT REALLY SHOULD BE FEATURED SOON IN A MOHO UPGRADE

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
++++++++practically u can copy and paste keyframes.++++++++++++++
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BUT: i think its not possible to mark lets say a bunch of keys, copy and paste them and finally reverse them.
==================================================
ALterNaTive:
copy 1 keyframe each, paste it inverted (so paste it and arrange it reversed)

(*n is keyframe #n+n-1 or so^^)
*1 *2 *3 *4 *5 *6 *7 *8 *9 *10
-copy *9... and paste it behind *10
arrange new:
*1 *2 *3 *4 *5 *6 *7 *8 *9 *10 *9
and repeat this procedure till u got somealike this:
*1 *2 *3 *4 *5 *6 *7 *8 *9 *10 *9 *8 *7 *6 *5 *4 *3 *2 *1


now u should have an reversed part of animation :D


but maybe someone else knows a better way

:wink:

:roll: (looking the previous post :twisted: ) Ejem, very well... I've been asking for this REVERSE KEYFRAME feature since lots of time, there is other posts in the forum asking for it, I always support it because seems as easy to add as USEFULL /save time feature (I'd say ESSENTIAL), cause of this I'll never lost my hope... :roll:

EDIT: Maybe the perfect script feature meantime... Somebody cheer up?? :D

yes Ramon.
i think its also essential, but as there is no way yet i help myslef with the "method" described above. its a bit of improvisation.

but i think the good scripters here can somehow help on this topic as i can imagine it wont be this hard to reverse keyframes by script, but i am afraid im not a good LUA scripter^^

(if i shall do some OFP-scripts for u, i can dig it :D)

If you want to reverse the keyframes in a layer animation, you can use the the reverse layer keyframes script here:
