Scale Keyframes instead of moving them
on Sep 10, 2009 at 6:54:39 pm

Thinking there must be a way to do this...

Wondering if anyone knows how to scale the position of keyframes as opposed to just moving them.

IE. Say I have a keyframe at 1 sec, 2 sec, and 3 sec. Is there a way to drag them so that they maintain their spacing proportionally? Instead of dragging them left and right and maintaining 1 sec between, I would like to scale them so that they could be 0.5, 1, 1.5 or maybe 2, 4 ,6.

Thanks.

You can do that selecting these keyframes and release Alt(pc) or Opt(mac) while click and move the first ou last keyframe.

From AE's Online Help:
"Expand or contract a group of keyframes in layer bar mode [aka the timeline]
  • Select at least three keyframes.
  • Hold down Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS) and drag the first or last selected keyframe to the desired time."

You'll find it here: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/AfterEffects/9.0/WS5C869900-0A2B-41b4-A563-8D8A...

Lots o' good stuff in there, you bet.
