Animate cars and people

I'm using the free version of Lumion 2.1 Build 3 and I wanted to know if it's possible to have moving cars. That is, how to animate the cars which have been inserted from the Lumion library. If possible, how do I define their path etc.  ???

Similarly, I wanted to know if it is possible to animate people. I mean, the models are moving but only in a fixed place. A man I inserted from the library is walking but not moving forward. How do I correct that?  |:(

In Video Mode, click on the Effects button for either the whole movie or a clip.

In the Scene Effects group (button with cloud/sun) you have Basic Animation Effect.  Try that, is easy and simple to use. The start position is initially from where you start the effect, so just click in the End button and move your object, then click on the tick to accept and go back to the Video Mode and play the clip.

There's a number of topics on the forum and some user video examples, as well as the (old) Lumion tutorial that shows how (although the interface has changed a lot since v0.9).
