I created an animation, a creature is walking. I would like to duplicate it several times in one scene but with different start frame. For example, obj1 starts from frame #5, obj2 starts from frame #10 . This way they don't look like they are the same object. How can I do that? BTW, I am using Cycles.

Thanks :)

duplicate your character (shift+D) then right click to keep it in the same place above your original character

then shift the new duplicated character by changing the value of delta location/rotation/scale (object tab > delta transform)

enter image description here

now you have two distinct objects moving together, you can shift the keyframes of the second object in the dope sheet editor (b to box select all keyframes then g to move them)

enter image description here

now you have two objects with two shifted animations.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the response. Shifting keyframes is not helping. Suppose that I have a walking character from frame #1 to #200. I want to have a second character which his move starts from frame #10 which means that the old frame #10 is his first frame (frame#1). This way both characters at frame #1 have different move. Does it make sense? $\endgroup$ – Mahshid May 4 '15 at 21:31
