Can anyone explain the tick boxes?
on Apr 30, 2009 at 1:00:17 am

I am having trouble understanding how the tick boxes work in the time-line or browser next to objects in my project.

Sometimes I can untick them, other times not, other times alot of stuff in my timeline is darkened and I dont know why.

Option-clicking will work with tick boxes sometimes, but I still dont understand it all, it seems kind of complicated?

What is a tick box? I did a search in the manual and that phrase doesn't show up. Can you take a still grab and post it please?

I'm thinking maybe Josh means the "visibility" check boxes?? Not sure the technical term...

You can only check them off/on if the group/layer is unlocked -- much like Photoshop. If you can't uncheck them, see if your lock is on.

If you're not playing through the timeline, unchecking a behavior, for instance, will not appear to have an effect - although it probably does. You have to scrub through to see...

I uncheck filters and some behaviors when the project gets large with many layers, and check them back before exporting or ram-previewing a final product.

Is that what you meant Josh?

Hi yes, thanks very much that is what i meant. Yeah, technical terms are not exactly my strong point when using this graphikey-animation-type thingamajig program.

Oh stop, I'm blushing. :- ) I think this showcases how powerful the COW is. More minds are better then one, that is for sure.
