Moving keyframes from one object to another

I used to be able to grab a track in the timeline and copy/drag it to another object. Doesn't seem to work anymore. Is this possible?

Yep. That changed with R14, I think.

So did Maxon remove the ability to move/copy keyframes and tracks between objects? Or did they change the way it can be done?

You can still Copy / Paste of course.
And CTRL+SHIFT+DRAG allows you to move keyframes to different tracks.

Again--what I am trying to do is (for instance) to copy the rotation track from one object, to the rotation track of another. This used to work.

I know what you're talking about, Joel.
Just telling you what I came up with since I noticed something was wrong.

In order for the Copy/Paste or the SHIFT-CTRL-DRAG to work I think you 'll need at least a dummy Keyframe on the Destination Track.

Thanks Lennart.

Odd that this simple/useful function was removed.
