Keyboard shortcut to scroll timeline based on selected layer
on May 2, 2017 at 9:33:41 pm

Hi folks,
Is there any keyboard shortcut to show the selected layer on timeline without having to drag the scroll bar on either side of the time line? When zoomed in to see the audio waveform, scrolling through mouse becomes quite difficult to work with.

This will be a great time saver!

Sorry, but no. It has always been a challenge to time out animations to audio. After you do it for a while, your speed increases. That's the good news.

I might have misunderstood your question, but X will scroll the timeline vertically to the selected layer, and D will scroll the timeline horizontally to the current time.

...oh, and don't forget about using Shy layers. They help make a comp with many layers a lot easier to manage.
