Automatic Time?

How does this button work? The documentation is rather sparse and unclear.

Thanks in advance,

It’s simple when you know. It takes all selected objects and spread their TimeOffset value over the interval you input after pressing the button. I don’t remember if the objects have to have the same base name (Plane.0001, Plane.0002, …) but I do know that if they do, they will be sorted numerically before setting the offset.

hope that’s clear.


Thanks for the help :smiley:


I have a somewhat related question. When I use automatic time for some objects (ex-dupliframes) travelling a path I want the objects to stop, when the first one has reached the end. At the moment all object go all the way to the end of the path. How to make this. Tweaking the IPOs for every object?
