Hello, I am following the tutorial, and I am stuck on a section.
I am trying to copy and paste the keyframes from the Rocket to the exhaust trail, I can select all and copy but it will not let me paste anything.
The option is grayed Out.

any idea why?

thank you.

Hi NeonDream84,

I can’t reproduce the problem here. So, let’s try the following. Please have a look at the one minute clip below (you might download it, for a better handling/quality)

https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive/share/jzvPdI6qWxr60hGEoKgaNyzntrVRrW8DMPbwvVpQHfM

I have pulled the sub menu out, so the copy command should show its result (that there is something) when the paste is not longer grayed out, Which is your problem here, I understand, but the visible menu will give you much faster feedback, when finally something has been copied.

Please start with a fresh new scene, can you reproduce this small example?
If not, please share the scene file of your set up of that specific scene, and I will take a look into it.

All the best

Thanks for the file, NeonDream84.

When you use the “dope-sheet” you copy and paste the same data.

I have done it here: (one minute clip.)
https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive/share/WouwSg4wGRuGyeSscqciD9YHmt6UswPfyyO20lZeHau

If you click after that back to the F-Curve window, you will see the data.
I checked all releases after R15, and F-Curve has no Copy/Paste functionality; Keyframes have.

I naturally use the keyframe (Dope Sheet), I have to check if that was introduced intentionally.
The reason I use the key frames is, that I have an instant comparison to other Key-Frames.

All the best

Hi Dr. Sassi, thanks for the quick video. I was able to reproduce it and copy past without a problem.
I am sending you what I am working with, this is the very first time I use the program so bear with me as I am learning this.

Again, I am simply trying to reproduce step 15 of the tutorial at the 10th minute. Thank you!

Please check post #2 which is the answer for post #3.
I have no idea why things flip that way. I guess the posts are now set to local time. (?)
