Hi people,

I have this problem.

Say i have this 2 3d objects. When i load 1 of them into my scene and move it somewhere else from its original postition, and after i load the 2nd one into it and move it away, the first one returns to the original position.

I've asked my lecturer bout it and he doesnt even know what's the problem.. Please help me. My deadline to submit my animation is 3 days away.

Create a keyframe for the object that you moved away after you move it.

how to do it?

Move the object where you want it and hit [Enter]. There should also be a "Create Key" button (I think) at the bottom of the screen, right?

If you're lecturer didn't know that one, it's seriously time to get a new lecturer. Keyframing is about the most basic thing you can do in layout.

Of course, the manual will tell you all about it....

Really as Hrgiger says if your lecturer/instructor doesn't know the most basic of things what can he teach you?

Man that's scary. I hope you don't have to pay anything for that 'training'.

Good luck to you. Post a clip when you finish.

and i've did everything. when i changed to 15 frames per sec, the frames ran. As in it became shorter than it was supposed to be.

Can anyone help pls!!

Poser is a character creation/rendering program that uses pre-made models.

Changing your frame rate to 15 will make the animation "shorter" in that it will then be fewer frames, but it should still be the same length time-wise. If you don't have "Play at Exact Rate" enabled in your options, then I guess it might appear to play faster in the preview.
