Scaling keyframes issues
on May 18, 2013 at 6:21:47 am

Hi there!.

I used to scale the keyframes of an animation by pressing a key and then dragging with the cursor all the keyframes, increasing or lowering distance between them in order to change the animation speed.

Now, I can't remember that key. Which one is the correct key?.

I tried with ALT. But when I try with that key, it works as...

- CTRL (Instead of dragging the keyframes increasing or lowering their distance, I select or de-select them).

- A kind of shorcut to navigate through the menu (Edit, tools, group, etc.).

- Also, I move the selected keyframes by de-selecting the first frame that I touch.

I know it's a weird situation, but it's possible to fix it?.

I'm using 3DS Max 2012.

Please help me and sorry for my english.

Good night!.

I am still on Max 2011, so I don't know about the shortcut key, but I do know that if you click on the Time Configuration button (it has a clock symbol) next to the current frame number box you can set a new length for the animation then click "Re-scale Time". It will do what you want, and almost as fast as the shortcut key method.

Supposedly selecting all your keyframes, then using the ALT key and dragging still works in Max 2012. But I can't test that for you...

Not yet, Mr. Joseph. But it doesn't matter... I have to adjust the keyframes manually. It's a shame, but what can I do?, hehehe.

Thanks for your concern :).

Right-click anywhere on any keyframe or the trackbar and select configure.
Tick 'Show selection range'.

When you select 2 or more keyframes you will now see the scale slider appear underneath them.

I can't believe that......... a simple thing solved this whole problem. I'm in shock, haha... really. I don't know why I didn't do this before.

Thank you very much, David. You're my savior.
