copy ob and keyframes ?

I have a small hinge with obs with 2 keyframes

is there a way to copy all obs with keyframes but independent of the first obs?

You asked your question in the wrong section. Also, when you mention “obs”, you need objects, right?

in which forum should it be ?

and obs is for objects

also found another problem
I remove some keyframes on some objects
and now I cannot add keyframes

so how can I do that ?

Since this is an animation problem, it should go into the other animation thread. Can you post the blend file for examination?

I ask to move it !

here is sample file
if you anim this door open / close

but if you copy all objects to another location
then try to anim it all doors go back to the first one

guess because there is location / rotation constraint !

but then how do you create another copy with the right keys independant of the first set of keys ?

So I took a look at the file. It’s simple really. Just get rid of the X keyframes after duplication. Problem solved.

do you have to go into Graph editor to remove X key ?
any other location to do that ?

still is it possible to copy objects _ keys to another location to have another set of anim doors ?

there must be something to do that in Bl ?

Yes, you have to go into the graph editor and remove the X Keyframes. Do this after you have duplicated the objects.

but this looks like the Keys are based on global coord instead of local !

still is there a way to make an independent copy ?

Go into the action editor after you duplicated the models and press the plus sign to duplicate the action.

can you show pic for this + things in NLA

you mean I copy all objects then do that ?

or is there a tut showing this may be?

It’s the only button with a plus sign in the NLA. You REALLY can’t miss it after you duplicate the models.
