Copies a transform pattern (not explicit values) from the selected nodes to the primary selected node within the selected time ranges.
When applying copyPattern, information is copied to the primary selection from the other members of the current selection. This command is not exactly a copy keys function, nor is it purely a curve interpolation function.
The command respects the in and out points defined by the range of keys selected, and smoothly blends from and to those points, matching the general trajectory shape of the non-primary selection to fill the gap.
When dealing with marker occlusions, often there is a nearby marker or markers whose transform pattern (generalized trajectory) is sufficiently similar to provide the information needed to fill the gap.
// The gap existing in LFWT between frames 100 and 300
// is filled using the key pattern that exists in LMWT
// over the same frame range.
select LMWT LFWT;
