reversing keyframes

Post by jakob polack » Wed Aug 24, 2005 2:22 pm

in animation/in the timeline - I want to be able to mark up a bunch og keyframes and then reverse them - so i dont have to do like i`ve listed below the old copy - paste behind routine....sigh - it sucks in complex animation


*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


one markup - rightclick - reverse keyframes - and then it pastes the
marked up keyframes behind the last selected keyframe in reverse order


THAnk YOU - THANK YOU - thank you-

You could also add "ping-pong" to the cycling frame interpolation method. That is, instead of cycling back to a specified keyframe, the cycle would go back and forth a certain number of times.

Another way that reversing keyframes could be useful is if you want to show several pieces of an object coming together, kind of an explosion in reverse. Although I guess you could do that by cutting and pasting keyframes in reverse order.
