You can edit the path to change the motion direction of any animation. Frames making up the animation can be added and removed.

Edit the Animation Path

  1. Select the animation you want to edit in the Saved Visuals & Markup tab in the Properties window.

  2. Click Show Animation Path .

    The system displays the path of the selected animation. An example path in a model is shown below.

  3. Go to the orientation axis where you want to change the path direction.

  4. Double-click the blue spot on the orientation axis to display the axis controls.

    These axis controls are similar to the ones used in creating section views.

    • - Rotates pitch and yaw angles, and changes the direction the view is facing.

    • - Moves that frame or point in that path up and down, or side to side.

    • - Provides another way to move the point.

  5. Hover your cursor over the control. When it changes size, drag the mouse to move the point.

  6. Repeat steps 4-5 for each point in the path that you want to change.

Add Frames to an Animation

  1. Click the Saved Visuals & Markup tab in the Properties window and select the animation.

  2. Move to the location or view in the model that you want to add and click Add to Current Animation .

    The software places the new frame at the end of the animation.

  3. Repeat step 2 for each view that you want to add in the animation.

Remove Frames in an Animation

  1. Expand the animation in the Properties window > Saved Visuals & Markup tab.

  2. Select the frame that you want to remove, and then right-click to select Delete.

    The system removes the frame; however, the frames contained in the animation are not automatically renumbered.
