Default infinity cycle help

hey,

Just a quick question,
i have a cycle of a character running, i've animated one cycle and then used the infinity cycle in the graph editor to have it repeating over and over..
my question is, is there a way of interupting the infinity cycle further along in the animation but keep the cycle going up to that point?? for instance, i want to have my character run for a 10 seconds then trip up and fall over.
is it a simple case of copying and pasting the key frames or is there an automatic way of doing it?
i hope that makes sence, help would be very much appreciated!!

cheers, pat

I believe this can be done using the 'Trax' editor, have a look into information about it in the help files.
