Triggering complex animation


New member
If I make a piece of animation - a few objects moving, can I encapsulate them, then transform the group (move/rotate/scale), how can I trigger the animation at a frame I choose? Thanks in advance.

Select all your animated objects, then group them and u can transform the group anyway you want. To move the animation, double click the group (or select all objects) drag-select all the key frames at the bottom of the screen (time line bar) then drag them across the time line to desired starting frame.
