Animating objects in Lumion - a boat

I have Lumion Basic and understand I cannot import animated objects (self modelled characters) in FBX format.  Does this mean that, despite the Lumion given animation features for people and animals, I cannot animate anything else at all?

I am trying to animate a boat moving and tried to do this by moving the camera instead.  The result was quite unconvincing as the wave (using then Lumion Free - Ocean!) and camera lateral movement, made the observer to know it had been faked.

So can I use any feature in Lumion Basic that allow me to animate "move" my boat along the water and horizon, without moving the camera?

Many thanks.

Importing move/scale/rotate animations is only possible in Lumion Free and Lumion Ultimate. This and other animation tools will eventually become part of an Animation plug-in - that's why it's already included in Lumion Ultimate since that version includes all plug-ins.
