Is it possible to animate people and cars on a sloped path or even a step.

If so how

you have to define the beginning and the end of movement (arrows)

With the movie effect move items. But it is only the beginning and end of the movie clip you set. For characters that walk you set the direction the character will keep walking in.

I didn't see the wrong orientation yet. That is probably a bug. Do all characters have this?

Models that were originally saved in the original version and opened in the beta update, seem to cause a problem with character movement height and direction.

I reloaded the model from scratch into the beta version together with new characters and it seems to work ok

I have a clue what it might be. If you rotate the character in Lumion and THEN animate it it might be turned incorrectly. So you should reset the rotation. To do this press CTRL in advanced mode. Drag the bank or pitch rotateion and while still dragging press 'R' to reset the rotation. Then use move items.

I have the same problem even on a new model loaded into the beta.

Start frame and end frame character is straight, in the movie she walks sideways.
