Sample text

This indicates where it would start in time if you were to release your mouse now, and provides an interactive way to decide your initial starting time. You can also move it up and down in the layer stack. Pick some location in the middle of the timeline, and release the mouse. The new layer will be added at the time you’ve picked. Note that with both methods, the layer is added to the center of the comp. 22 Drag the current time marker back and forth, and notice how the flower symbol does not appear in the Comp viewer until after the time marker crosses the start of the layer in the timeline.

It is indicated by two dots in a straight line on either side of the keyframe (A). This means After Effects will automatically create a smooth bend through this keyframe. • Dragging one of these dots results in the keyframe being converted into a Continuous Bezier type, indicated by the straight line (“handle”) that connects the dots (B). You can drag this handle to explicitly control how the motion path flows through the keyframe. • If you want to create a sudden change in direction at the keyframe, hold down g and drag one of the handle’s dots to “break” their continuous nature.

18 In the Comp panel, you can drag the handles sticking out of a keyframe to easily manipulate the motion path into and away from that keyframe. 20 Under the A/V Features column are a pair of keyframe navigation arrows, which make it easy to jump to the previous or next keyframe for a given property. If the diamond between them is yellow, the current time marker is parked on top of a keyframe. 20 You can also easily edit the value of a keyframe after you’ve created it. In the A/V Features column of the Timeline panel are a pair of gray arrows surrounding a small diamond.
