Create An Animation KEYFRAME For The Currently Selected Objects

  • When pressed, a Keyframe Animation will be added to every selected object.
  • If an object already has a Turntable Animation assigned, a prompt will appear (see above).
  • If an object already has a Keyframe Animation assigned, a new Keyframe will be set in the existing Animation.
    • If the Timeline slider has not been moved and the Current Time is less or equal to the last Keyframe time, the new Keyframe will be added 1 second after the last Keyframe, without advancing the Timeline.
    • If the Timeline slider has been moved and Current Time is greater than the last Keyframe, the new Keyframe will be created at the Current Time.
