Hi mgfranz!

You might like to take a look at a tutorial by Justin Geis which shows you how to create an exploded view animation using Animator. Around about the 5:30 mark, Justin shows you how to reverse the explosion so that might give you some idea of how to achieve the effect you want.

The tutorial can be found at:

Let us know how you get on.

Thanks NF, but I don't think using the explosion will work in this instance since I have the need to place a total of 12 screws in 3 different locations. I suppose I could do some Easing on the fly-in group, let me do some research. I have attached my SU and animation file for a visual reference, just remove the .txt extension.

Ok, it took a while, but I got it figured out. I had to create a variety of transitions, once I placed the objects in the correct location I backed out the object to a location off-scene, then just reversed the movements.

1) Fixed the screws in place
2) Backed them off
3) Moved them off scene
4) Created transition to move them back
5) Created transition to move them again
6) And again.

Not real pretty, but it works. Still may play with some linear motions, but I got it solved. Not sure why the graphics are pixilated, .avi sucks, .mp4 is fine. I'll play with FPS.

Looked OK to me. You did what I was going to suggest, but didn't as I got sidetracked out (wife!) as I was going to reply.

It's in my plan to address these types of movement, with a Move-to tool (also to be used to align objects in bulk).

This is a bug which I fixed in LibFredo6 8.4g, just released.
