David HallHow to hide a value under the transform?

I'm trying to hide the values that I don't use but it doesn't work when I select them and press delete.
How can I delete "anchor point" "position""opacity"?

You want to get rid of them entirely? Not possible... However if you hit the shortcut for the item while holding down Shift and having the layer selected, they will be toggled on and off. Try shift+T to hide the opacity, for example.

Anchor point is "A" position is "P" and opacity is "T"

Awesome, it works.
How did you discover this stuff?
Could you please recommend a great book to learn AE?
Love it so much.

That kind of stuff is covered in the resources linked here: http://adobe.ly/AE_basics

Experience and watching millions of tutorials! The best introduction is VideoCopilot's basic training tutorials:

http://www.videocopilot.net/basic/

I try to watch a tutorial and then find a different project to apply what I learned to. Or if I go to start on a project and I'm not sure how to do it I'll usually surf around to find a tutorial for something similar, and then figure out how to adapt it to what I want to do. As far as the small tips and tricks - you pick those up over the years. For example want to set a keyframe on any property that has a shortcut? hold shift+alt like shift+alt+p to key the position of a layer. That's a totally random tip I heard on a tutorial years ago, and I just used it in a project 5 minutes ago!

Also, I've read the whole AE manual through digital cover to digital cover. It took me a few weeks but it was well worth it.

Hi, I've encountered another problem about this.
I was trying to hid mask opacity but I can't find its shortcut anywhere.
Any solutions about this?

You can temporarily hide any property whether it has a shortcut or not by Alt+Shift+clicking the property name in the timeline panel.

That's cool, never knew about that trick!

The shortcut for mask opacity is "TT". Unfortunately when trying to hide it you will also toggle the layer opacity...
