I have several clones of an object. If the object is animated (e.g. a walking figure) all clones move exactly the same, of course.
How can I change this, so the animation of the clones is shifted in time? My goal is to make the animation of all walking figures start at a different frame.
Thanks for any tip!

Nobody knows about this?
I know it must be possible, since I have seen it work in another plugin in R9.1.

You want to animate the object. Use AnimateObject() maybe? ;-)

Ah, that's a very good tip :)
I was always looking for something to set the time of an object, like ->SetTime(). Difficult to find things when you got no idea what to look for.
Thanks, I will try if AnimateObject does what I want!

Yep, that does exactly what I want.
Thank you, Samir!

Please keep in mind that AnimateObject does not take expressions into account. If your object is animated by expressions you have to use AnimateDocument.

Rights, thanks for the reminder. But I think, AnimateObject() will do it for now ;-)
