OK, so I have a composition that consisted of several PSDs moving around,
changing position and rotation and forming shapes.

What I don't get is somehow keyframes are "between" frames on the timeline.
So I can't position the playhead on them, but have to move the keyframs "half a frame"
back or forth so they will be "on the grid".

Evan after I move and align them, the little buggers somehow end off the grid.

Here's a screen cap

notice how keyframes show beween the keyframes markers.

Anyone familiar with that ? cheers

I believe that it's a preference-related setting to allow KFs to sit in-between frames.

I've been through that.. frustrating as hell!

move them back and forth and/or create a new key frame at the frame you want.

Sometimes i just ignore them.. havent noticed any bumps from it..

I am working with a project right now using exported camera data from Maya where this issue is rampantly at large... only the keyframes are off by the tiniest visible fraction before or after where the frame should sit proper.

Is there not a way to just force them into their "correct" position at one time? This project's frame count is pretty high to go through and move them all manually.

Seems like there should be an easy solution.

Could this be a frame rate mismatch? 29.97 vs. 30?

That does make sense... but I know the frame rates in my particular scenario are both set to 30.

Andy, did you ever figure out a solution to this problem besides adjusting each keyframe by hand?

Old topic, but I'd like to know the solution please!
