But with a very large model realtime playback might be a problem so you would need to export the animation and combine images to e.g. an avi file to get fluent playback.

To get started try this:

1. Export your LDD model to a ldr file.
2. Save the above zip to the same location and unpack it.
3. Open the ldr in LDCad
4. Drag and drop the .lua file onto LDCad to link the script to the model.
5. In the search bin (minfig with magnifying glass) search for :   tile 1x1 round pin hole
6. Use that part to map a route inside your model.
7. When you got a couple of them placed start the animation with the menu: /scripts/<your model>/Minifig tour

This all assuming your model is level grounded, if not the script would need a minor adjustment compensate for this. Let me know if it's needed as I was planning to adjust the script for it anyway sometime.
my files are already converted to ldr so that is out of the way.  there are a few steps i will need explained further...
Step 4. and
Step 7. 

 Also i dont quite understand what you are saying here ...

once i get your explanation on those steps i will probably start out practicing with with a smaller model for a while to get the hang of it before moving on the the full model. (it is not quite complete anyhow.)

Thank you so much for the help. i will keep in touch and share the results with you. I am very excited as i was beginning to resign myself to the notion that i would have to rely on making a video of my creation out of a montage of still photos. This has renewed my hope that this can be shared as an animation  Smile
