I'm new to smoke, downloaded the trial to test out as a potential buy.
I have the dumbest question. How do you change the "playable area" when you are in the CC editor? Could it be called the focus area? I I enter the CC editor from the timeline. I can then play through the entire sequence. How can I limit/zoom into the portion I'm working on so that it fills the bar.
unfortunately you cant change the scale as such - will always show the entire sequence
if you look closer, you might discover a bluish segment, which is you current shot - not much use if its more than a 20sec spot ... ;-)
in theory you can CTRL+drag - which should limit the scrolling to the shot - or if the shot was actively selected (not "just" current position) you can use "Play Selection" - used to be "T", but i think, you have to manually assign it - its in the hotkey list (CTRL+ALT+F8)
