Animation problem

Hey guys. So I have an object which has an animation cycle baked to it as .mdd format. It is around 40 frames long which is a little over a second at 30fps. Now I want that the animation cycle repeats itself while I move in camera from different angles. How can I do this? Is there a way to have one timeline for the object and another for the camera?

Try the NLA editor. P.S. it was very confusing to use in Blender. 2.79. Please let me know if they made it more user friendly in new blender!
