Select keyframes in multiple layers at time indicator
on Sep 13, 2016 at 8:50:29 am

Hello Creative People,

I really tried to find this one, but I didnt´succeed: I have 150 layers, and they all get keyframes in multiple parameters. What I want to do is to select keyframes at the current time indicator position across all layers. Do you know of a way to do that without draw a selection around them and waiting ages until that layer-window scrolled all the way down to the bottom?

Thanks in advance and best regards

Daniel

just make sure they are all visible by selecting all the layers and typing U

Hi and thanks for your reply! I´m afraid, it´s not what I was looking for, because I never get all the the layers visible at the same time.

I see. Maybe the process could be faster by using shortcuts: Tilda ~ key to maximize the timeline panel + disabling preview Caps Lock.

Thanks again! For some reason deactivating the preview has no influence on the scrolling speed in the window :/ Looks like I need to be patient ;)

Best regards

Daniel

What are you trying to accomplish by doing this? Do you need to make Wholesale changes in timing?

There may be a Plan B.

Hi Dave,
sorry, I didn´t see that you replied, thanks for that. I was using the awesome tool Pastiche by Motion Boutique to animate 180 layers, and I wanted to somehow get more control over the whole thing, like indeed changing the timing, or just changing their interpolation behaviour at once. Most of the stuff I ended up doing with time remapping the subcomps then, but maybe you have an alternative in stock?
Thanks and best regards
Daniel

I'd REALLY like this feature too. According to scripting supremo Lloyd Alvarez, there's no existing way or tool to do this. I find this rather baffling as it seems like a super basic thing to do, but it's probably possible to write a script for it. Anyone up for the task?
