xc mode is available only with Animation.

In Autokey mode, Animation:
  • Automatically positions the key points, based on the position of the time bar
  • Computes the animation so that the components reach the specified positions
  • Computes the motion of assembly components from one position to the next using interpolation

When you select Autokey , the MotionManager places key points automatically. Key points are placed at times based on your actions with the model.

When you clear Autokey , you must place key points manually.
