Re: Select all layers above or below

[Vinnie Spano] "When selecting all layers, and then shift+clicking on a layer, After Effects seems to arbitrarily select either all layers above or below the layer that was clicked. I recently worked on a project with 200+ layers, and this made adjusting layers on the timeline very frustrating. Does anyone know how to intentionally select all layers below or above?"

Selection in this case seems work inside-out, based on the mouse cursor position. If you select all, then move the mouse UP and shift+click, it will de-select above your clicked layer. If you select all, the move the mouse DOWN and shift+click, it will de-select below your clicked layer.

If you end up with the opposite of the selection you want, you can right-click any of the selected layers and choose "Invert selection" from the context menu.
