Pasting Cycles

If you want to cycle a portion of your animation, you can use the Paste Cycle command. You can also use the Paste Reverse command to completely reverse the flow of your animation.

To cycle a portion of an animation:

1. In the Xsheet or Timeline view, select the cell range and keyframes to loop.
2. From the top menu, select Edit > Copy.
3. In the Xsheet or Timeline view, select the cell on which you want your cycles to start.

4. From the top menu, select Edit > Paste Cycle or press [Ctrl] + [/] (Windows/Linux) or [⌘] + [/] (Mac OS X).

The Paste Cycle dialog box opens.

5. In the Number of Cycles field, increase or decrease the number of cycles you want to paste.
6. In the Cycle Type, select the type of cycle you want to paste.

Normal (forward): Pastes your selection as it is, starting with the first cell and ending with the last.
Reverse: Pastes your selection reversed, starting with the last cell and ending with the first.
Forward > Reverse: Pastes your selection as a yo-yo, starting with the first cell, going to the last one and ending with the first cell.
Reverse > Forward: Pastes your selection as a reversed yo-yo, starting with the last cell, going to the first one and ending with the last cell.

To reverse the animation flow:

1. In the Xsheet or Timeline view, select the cell range and keyframes to paste inverted.

2. From the top menu, select Edit > Copy.
3. In the Xsheet or Timeline view, select the cell on which you want your cycles to start.
