Hi all,

Wondering if it's possible to move people, cars etc. on a looped path while using theatre / interactive mode?

Thanks for any help

Hi James, there's currently no function to make Basic/Advanced Animations loop seamlessly, unless you're very patient and keyframe this manually.

Been trying to figure out how to move objects while viewing in theatre mode - the birds and fish move on a path - wondering if it can be done for walking people / cars?

Any help much appreciated.

Unfortunately, this is not possible.

If you click on the Play button in Movie mode, and then click on the Theatre mode button, the camera will be following whatever animation you have assigned to it.

There have previously been requests for a way to "override" the camera animation in each clip, so that you could inspect the scene/clip while the animations are playing in Theatre mode.
