Hello everybody.
I'm new in Blendering and now i have some problems.
I made an animation and it works quite fine. Now i made another animation which is nearly the same animation like the first one so i placed my objects in the right position and then comes my problem: Is there any oportunity to copy the markers from the IPO curve editor from the First animation to the IPO curve editor of the 2nd animation? Generally i have to say that i that i thought that there where some simple ways to copy objects an paste tham to save time but copy and paste i think is also quite complicated?!

So can you help me to make my animating easyer that i don't have to read the single attributes of the marks or objects an write them down again.

Hope you understand my questions
And many thanks ahead.

Each set of markers belongs to the the scene in which they were created. If there animations you are creating are in different scenes, or even different files, you could write a simple python script to save the value of each marker to a file and then read it back again to dump the markers into the new file.

Creating movies by joining separate scenes pretty much describes how movies get made. Blender has a sequence editor for that task. If you need references to get you started, try this:
