Group Instances and Animation


Here is something i’d like to do in Blender 2.56 :

  • Create a group of objects animated (OK possible)
  • Duplicate the group x times (OK possible with add Group instances) => the object and his animation are well duplicated.
  • Create a time offset for the animation duplicated. I would like for example the animation of the instance to start x frames later than the original. Is that possible ?

In the dopsheet panel there is no keyframes for the duplicate even if this one is animated (???)

Thanks for any help / any alternative solutions !

EDIT : there is a “time offset” in fact in the “animation hack” panel but i didn’t succeed to make it work (or it doesn’t work) …?.. Any ideas ?

The same question for me !

In blender 2.49, the time offset was very good…
