Hi vu le, can't you use the Advanced Move effect for that?

Surreal animation for sure :)

From version 3 onwards, the Move effect makes 3D people animations loop instead of continuing beyond the trajectory of their paths.

As I mentioned in my previous reply, I would recommend using the Advanced Move effect instead of the Move effect to make that kind of animation.

You mean you can't find the effect?

Or you don't know how to animate models with this effect?

Hi vu le, the only difference is that there's a time parameter on the far left, and that you can add more keyframes than in the Move effect.

1) Set the Time parameter to the same length as your clip (if it isn't already set to that).

2) Move the timeline slider to wherever you want it to be.

3) Move/rotate/scale one of your models.

4) Repeat 2 and 3 until you're happy.

5) Click on the OK button.

However, please bear in mind that there is currently a bug in the Advanced Move effect which can cause the rotation of 'non-walking' 3D people to get 'stuck'.

Hopefully this can be fixed in the upcoming 3.0.2.

Hi vu le, I've tested imported models as well as Transport models, Indoor models and 3D people, and apart from what I already mentioned, I am able to animate all model types and none of them disappear.

So to be able to investigate it further, I'd be grateful if you could send me your (zipped) LS3 file via wetransfer.com (morten [at] act-3d.com).

Please include a screenshot or a description of the model(s) that disappear when you try to animate them with the Advanced Move effect.

Hi vu le, sorry to rush you but would it be possible to send me the scene/information today?

It would be great if we could investigate your report before 3.0.2 is released.
