Zooming in in the timeline
on Jan 21, 2016 at 11:42:57 am

I know the basics about zooming in in the timeline. But I noticed that sometimes one frame will take up about 4cm on my monitor, give or take. But more often, I can only zoom into one frame for 2 cm. How do I get that super zoom? The hills and mountains slider and the + key aren't doing it.

Thanks

I don't know how to zoom in further than "zoomed in all the way".

So you never noticed on your machine that sometimes zoomed in all the way is more zoomed than other times?

Nope. Oh, I suppose you'd see a difference if the comp was a few frames long or it had a really low frame rate, but I've never really paid all that much attention to it. Too much other stuff to concentrate on, I guess.

It's not short comps that causes it because I don't have any short ones. I haven't experimented with it this week, but as far as I remember, it maybe has something to do with the overall size of the layout. I did a bunch of syncing in Sep-Oct and noticed that sometimes it would be more zoomed. I didn't care much. But now I actually would like that super zoom.

I figure if I can make out individual frames when zoomed all the way in, I'm good to go. Anything more seems like overkill to me.
