Compress Keyframe timing
by KB Burnfield on Jun 19, 2019 at 1:38:03 pm

I've got an animation I'm working on and it's 10 seconds long but after working on it I realize it would be better at 5, what I've done in the past is export it and in FCPX I just speed it up but I recall there's a way to go into the keyframe editor and "compress" the time or distances between keyframes.... isn't there?

I can't find any reference to this anywhere online so I thought I'd ask.


thx

Draw around the keyframes using the Transform Keyframes Tool (highlighted in blue) and then you can adjust the resulting bounding box to resize the animation.

Of course, if you don't have 3D groups you could always make a master group for your entire project and put everything inside it.

If you then make a Clone of that group, you can retime it using either the Retime Behaviors or by keyframing the Timing controls for the group.
