    animating issues

    I am wanting to animate 4 bolts slotting into a hole with washers and sleeves slotting in also. I have animated one set of the bolt/washer/sleeve slotting in and i was wondering if there is an easy way to copy the keyframes over to the other 3 sets so they are all synchronised?

    Also when i set key frames up for rotating the bolt, the bolt moves first the wrong way and then spins round the right way. I think this is something to do with curves??? can you switch curves off for one object?

    thanks

    The answer to your second quesion is that you need to set you may need to set a few key frames to "linear" in the graph editor.

    Or adjust the controls to remove the odd motion. The Linear is a quick fix, but may not look like u want it too.

    As for the 1st question, just clone the object, then click on "Move Path" in the motion options (Item tab, near bottom of menus in Layout 7.5c)
