kOS Second Shooter Overwrite Keyframes

Is there any way to overwrite a keyframe without having to delete the keyframe, etc? Currently when I try, I get the error that the placement is too close to an existing keyframe.

If it currently isn't possible I hope you consider that for a future update. Maybe press and hold "Record Key Frame" to replace. Or instead of the error message coming up, a message that confirms that you want to replace the existing keyframe.

Hi Scott -
You can edit a keyframe. This video goes over setting up and editing keyframes.

If you have not seen them, here are several tutorial videos for kOS.

You can also zoom in on the graph, under the Graph Options tab.

UPDATE: You can also move the motor to the "correct" position for the key frame you want to edit, then bring up the edit key frame window and click on "Move To Motor Position" button. This will update the key frame to the position the motor is in. Verified in kOS for Second Shooter v4.5.0 (Windows).

If you need any further help, please e-mail our support team at support@kesslercrane.com. Thanks!

I have gone through all the tutorials and I know I can adjust an individual keyframe by holding the keyframe and using the arrows, etc. I think it would still be helpful to use the regular controls in the interface to adjust the positioning, etc. and save over a keyframe. Still hope that could be added to a future software update.

I totally agree with Scott about this. It would be much more efficient to just be able to overwrite the key frame setting. Please give this some consideration.

I updated my original answer with the following info, which I believe is exactly what you are wanting to do....
