Advanced Animation - max 99s?

Hey Guys!

I'm new to lumion and I'm experimenting with animating people to walk in different path in the video.  I'm having a small problem because my video is more than 99sek and my animation fucks up after the 99sek. Some of the animation doesn't work and some keeps repeating it self and it ruins the video. Do you guys know how to fix that?
My video is made in a one single clip, so the clip is about 2.40sek.
I have maybe a small solution to how to fix it, but is it possible to copy a clip and inserting it in the same video. So I have 2 of the same clip in one movie?
I'm have tried the copy button but it looks like it only copies the effects in the scene.

Thanks in advance. :)

As you indicate, you will need to split the single clip up in to smaller length clips to use the  Advanced Move Effect for animating people on a path.

There is no single 'copy clip' feature currently in Lumion (has been suggested), but you can copy 10 snapshots (keyframes) of a clip and paste those to another clip, which means there is accuracy in the new camera views.

Use the same key combinations as you would for taking camera view snapshots for Photos.

In the clip to copy; use the Ctrl key + number to copy, and in the new clip use the Shift + number key then click the Take Snapshot button to set the clips keyframe.

You can do this 10 at a time copy by using Ctrl + 1, Ctrl +2..etc to Ctrl + 0, and then pasting each of the recorded positions with the Shift + number.


ps: little reminder that the forum is a public forum  ;)
