The Animation mode in CINEMA 4D allows you to manipulate a motion path without destroying the keyframes that have already been set. In this video, learn how to use the Animation mode to alter the positioning of a motion path.
- [Voiceover] Here we have an animation…that has a slight problem.…If we go to the front view,…we can see that the ball is turning into a cube.…But that's not the problem,…it's actually bouncing underneath the floor.…And if we click on the animated object,…you can see that there's a lot of key frames.…And it would be a lot of work to reposition these manually.…Fortunately, there is a special mode…that we can use to just move the whole motion path.…
And, if you come over here, and use Animation,…and we're at quite a good spot here…where the Y-axis is pointing upwards.…So, this is gonna help us move the animated object.…See, if I start moving this now, moving the animation,…we are not destroying any of the key frames that we've set.…If I move it back into place over here,…we can then come back into our other views,…and probably wanna raise it up a bit.…
So we can just scrub back.…See the ball bouncing.…Let's just see...…It looks good.…And then what we can do, is turn on the Floor object.…You may wanna just raise it up a touch,…
