Hi Brunocs77, the easiest way is to apply the Basic Animation effect to a clip in the Movie section:

Hi,

When I click the link you gave, I've got the message "You either don't have acces to this topic or it does not exist.Some topics require you to log in.".

Is it normal ? I can't access the bug and report section ?

Ah yes, that section is for paying customers only.

Search for the "Basic Animation" and "Advanced Animation" effects using the forum search function for more information.

Here are some examples:

Thank you for your answer. Another question, nobody told for Poser software which can make animation. Can I easily import Poser animations in Lumion ?

In order to have a good animation of the steps: how much a man walk in 1 (or 10) seconds? Is there a difference between men and women?
~1 meter / second is working almost every time but I would like to know if you have an optimized formula for this.

Thanks in advance.

We haven't got a suitable formula for the Advanced Animation effect.

If you're using the Basic Animation effect, the movement speed is identical for all the walking people, but the walk speeds/stride lengths are not. The result is that some walking people will appear to be sliding/moonwalking.

In the short run, we can perhaps adapt the walk cycle speeds so they're identical for all people.

But in the long run, Ferry needs to make it possible for people to move at different speeds, so that children, old people etc can walk at different speeds.
