Hi All,

Is there a function anywhere in Layout that allows you to copy and paste the
heading and XYZ co-ordinates from one time frame and paste it to another time frame?

Kind Regards

Make a key? (just leave out the bank, pitch and scale).

Edit: Oops, might have misread your post.

From a timeline in one scene into another scene?

Hello Joe,

Yes, imagine I have am object in Layout. I move it from frame 10 to a new position at frame 20 but at frame 30 I would like the object in the exact same position as it was at frame 10.
It would be nice to left click and copy all position data only.
I do have a solution, at frame 30 jump back to frame 10, then press return (opens "Create Motion Key") and enter the frame number 30 in the create key field.
That will jump all the same position data at that frame.

Yup, that's the way to do it. I often use that to set the same position for the start and end of a scene so that whatever keys I put in the middle the object will "find its way back".

....jump back to frame 10, then press return (opens "Create Motion Key")...

Exactly :).
