IPO Troubles

Hello, I got some problems.

Basically, I can’t “see” my key frames in any window ( Action, NLA, Ipo ) unless I use a bone. For example, I have a material fade from 0.00 Alpha to 1.00 Alpha in the animation. But I can’t view the IPO’s of this animation in any window. All I can see is the marker in the Timeline window.

The reason why I want to do this is so I can copy and paste the frames to loop, since I don’t want to do it over and over again.

Materials have their own IPO window …Just select the material with the alpha keyed then in the IPO window header hit the up/down arrow and select “Material” … You should now see the alpha IPO curve …

Ah, thank you Vertex Pusher. I understand what I was doing wrong now. I didn’t realize each category ( Object, Material, ect. ) had thier own IPOs.
