Thank you very much for your helpful response Lordhi.
Updated to IC8.02 early this morning following which I tried out the Key frame edit function with little success.
Since then I have restarted my computer and reloaded Iclone 8.02
I now realize I was not getting an auto marker when I tried earlier today.. By setting a marker each time I edit the pose and using your suggestion I can now get it working to my satisfaction.
Now find it adds a default motion in the time line, which I can extend at will. I`m as confident as I can be that I wasn`t getting that before. Can also apply transition warps etc. to this.
I feel sure the process is not as simple/auto as it was but thankfully I can now make it work for me.
Your help with this has been very much appreciated.
