Hello, I'm trying to find a quick way to copy and paste a sequence of keyframes without having to do a time slice copy and paste to each curve separately. Is there a way I can copy all the curves/keyframes at once and then paste them on the timeline in a different location?

Thanks

Select the keys you want and ctrl-rmb drag the pointer so the points are where you want them and then release. Make sure the pointer isn't over a curve, as when you release, it won't add points.

:rolleyes: Ok, that's easy enough. But is it possible to do that on more than one curve at a time? I want to copy some keys to a walk cycle and repeat the same keys later in the timeline. How can I select keyframes on different curves at the same time and copy them?

Thanks

Just multi-select all the curves you want in the channel bin before you copy them.

I select all the channels and then selected all the keys in the graph editor. I then held down the ctrl key and RMB draged the copied keys out onto a diffent position. When I let go the ghosted keys won't always stay on the graph and just disappear. Once in a while i get lucky and it works but I'm wondering if the cursor needs to be on the curves or the grey space or what?

Thanks for the help guys!

this is what i know: if you want to copy only one channel's keyframes, the cursor MUST BE ON THE CURVE.

if you want to copy multiple channels at a time, the cursor MUST NOT BE ON THE CURVE.

Don`t forget the Keyframer plugin, for when you want to copy entire curves to other channels.
