Time Remapping Greyed out (CS6)
on Apr 20, 2015 at 9:41:31 pm

Hey, I've done a bit of searching and can't find a solution to this problem.
There are no keyframes in the comp.

I'm following a tutorial for a project file I purchased from Video Hive, and i've done everything exactly as they have, except time-remapping isn't greyed out for them.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

The obvious thing that comes to mind: you're trying to time remap a still. Since stills have no frame rates or set duration, there's nothing to time remap.

Nope, it's an animated info box. It animates in and animates out.
The time remapping is in order to lengthen the amount of time it's on screen without slowing down the animate in and out.

Yeah, but that doesn't answeer the question -- is it a still? Is it video footage? Is it a nested comp?

I can maked an "animated info box" out of scanned photograph and a couple of text layers,l and animate their position & scale. It still doesn't mean I can use time remapping on it.

Figured it out. Though it wasn't a still, your reply led me to the answer. I was trying to time remap an object or something. When I went to the source comp I could remap....
Thank you!
