How do I change the speed of an object on a 3D path?

How do I show the 3D path keyframes on task bar?

Can I speed up or slow down the time it takes a resource to travel along a segment of a 3D path? When editing keyframes in a 3D path, how do I adjust the "Time" property of a particular point?

    To display the 3D Path keyframes on the Gantt bar, select the path in Navigator>3D Paths, the task in the Gantt Chart, and the travelling 3D resource in the 3D window or Resource list.

    To edit the timing of a keyframe:

    1. In the 3D Path Editor, use the arrows to jump to the desired keyframe
    2. Move the red Focus time marker to the point in time you want to move the keyframe to
    3. In the 3D Path Editor>Keyframe panel, right click and select Capture Focus Time – this will move the current keyframe marker to where the focus time line is, keeping the object position/rotation the same as before

    Is there a way to edit the time at which a keyframe has been set at a later date?

    I created a 3D path with lots of keyframes using the method above but a while later I realised that two of my keyframes were too close together and I needed to change the time they happen. When modifying a 3D path the capture keyframe is greyed out and the keyframe positions no longer appear on my gantt chart

    Hi Sarah, 

    In order to display the 3D Path keyframes on the Gantt bar, make sure you select all 3 of the following: 1) the path in Navigator>3D Paths, 2) the task in the Gantt Chart, and 3) the 3D resource in the 3D window or Resource list.

    To update the timing, use "Capture Focus Time" in the right click menu, not the "Capture Keyframe" button.
