Keyframes following scale on timeline
on Jun 28, 2010 at 8:17:01 pm

I am trying to scale a layer's duration on the timeline but do not want its various keyframes to follow. I can understand them following as you scale a movie clip, but this is a static image/text. I'm simply wanting to extend it's last chunk of frames. At the same time, I want those keyframes to stay put and their effects to remain constant as I extend the clip.

I looked in Motion>Preferences>General>Keyframe Editor and checked "Lock keyframes in time" but that did not seem to make any changes I hoped for. Is there any way to toggle this feature on/off?

Just change it's end condition to Hold and stretch it out.

Thanks. I need to hit up the manual on this behavior. So far I haven't been able to get any results. But we're getting closer.


If anyone knows of another way to fix, what is starting to look like a general software limitation, please let me know.

Thanks again.

I'm not sure what you are doing. If I keyframe, say, the position and rotation of a still image that is 3 second long, and I then drag out the end of the layer in the mini-Timeline to extend it's duration, the keyframes are unaffected. If I want the keyframes to scale proportionally over time, I can hold down the Option key and drag. So seems to me you can do it either way.

Thanks Mark! For me it ended up being the CMD key instead of option key. And now the problem is solved! You rock!

Thanks again to you and everyone who responded.
