Selecting only layer attributes with keys to show beneath multiple layers?
on Aug 22, 2009 at 6:25:25 am

I'm working with some projects that have 50+ layers, and I'm wanting to scale back the keyframes to shorten (or lengthen) the end or beginning keys only to adjust the length of the rendered clip. I could do this in FCP by adjusting the speed, but then the motion blur won't be as pronounced as I intended, and I only have the ReVision optical flow moblur plugin for Shake so I prefer to just adjust things in AE to shorten the workflow and get better quality. The problem is, with so many layers, it becomes cumbersome to open all of the transform, effects, and camera options that I have keyed under each layer, in terms of vertically click-dragging down (I have dual 24s, but they're ACDs so they're aligned horizontally). Is there a way to open just the attributes that have keys for each layer (like when you press "p" to only open the position attribute)?

Press 'u' to reveal keyframed properties. Or 'uu' to reveal any properties that have been changed from their defaults (that's 'u' twice quickly).
