Can't delete keys from timeline I'm trying to create an animation to show the assembly procedure for an add-on kit, but I'm having a lot of trouble getting things to appear in the order that I want them to. In all honesty, I have about 20 hours of Composer experience, and 8 years of SolidWorks, so I may be fighting myself more than I should.

I am new to Composer and I would like to ask a few questions regarding updating assemblies in Composer: Is there a way to link assemblies in Composer to Solidworks, so when I make changes in Solidworks, it will automatically update in Composer? My company just has started using Composer to produce part manuals and often many products share the same parts, so we would like to be able to update all the manuals at once when we make changes from Solidworks, rather than going to individual files and

I created an animation in SolidWorks Composer. When I convert the animation to an AVI file some of the actors are not totally visible in the Viewport. Is there a way to rescale the animation so that all actors are visible when the animation is converted to AVI. I'm trying to avoid recreating the animation to correct my error.

I have a huge file that I need to convert to a smg file but it is way too slow and composer keeps crashing on me. I would like to know how I can get the model but not all of the other stuff in the SW file that is bogging it down. check out the save as function and options to different file types.

I am setting up a vault in SolidWorks PDM for Composer files. My question is will Composer files need a workflow to manage files? Some may argue this with me, or disagree because we don't have Composer, but I would not make a separate vault for composer files.

I am trying to update the model in a Composer document but every time I try it turns the visibility off on every actor. The BOM ID's and call outs are still intact but not showing because the actors are not visible.

I am trying to update a model in a composer document but when I do it turns off the visibility of every actor. As a result on each view in the BOM tab there is nothing visible and I can't turn off the show visible actors only button so I can see them to turn the visibility on.

Is there a way to take the data from a SolidWorks Drawing and have it automatically generate a BOM in Composer? Right now our Engineers create a BOM on a drawing, and then that BOM gets re-created in Composer. Our assembly trees use a lot of configurations and assembly blocks, so we've been generating the BOM in Composer one line at a time (which can be repetitive and time-consuming).

I am having a lot of difficulty using the "Set as Neutral Properties" and "Restore Neutral Properties" commands. I am working on a storyboard with a very large assembly, and I keep having to add components by importing them as .step files. Quite often these components need to be translated and rotated into their correct position. Once in the correct position, I want to set that position as the neutral position.

I am trying to generate an avi of my models exploding, but the base is being cut off everytime. I have tried setting it 300 mm above the floor level, but that does nothing. If I zoom out, as soon as I start to create the AVII the bloody thing zooms in again and cuts off the bottom of the model.

Is there a way to show older versions of the meta-data information in Composer based on the parts revisions in Solidworks EPDM? Possibly using the BOM feature. I am trying to show the "history" or changes to the Solidworks custom properties of a part in composer.
