Chapter 5. Compositing and Editing in th... > Identifying Objects in the Timeline

Identifying Objects in the Timeline

You can identify what type of object you are working with (such as a video clip, filter, behavior, mask, or layer) in either the Layer list on the left of the Timeline or in the Track area on the right. The Layer list is almost identical to the Layers tab; the only exception is that you cannot display previews, opacity, or blend modes (although you can Control-click to set the blend mode). Objects in the Track area are identified by both the icon in the track and the color of the bar.

Layer Objects are identified with a thin blue bar. The layer name and the name of the object also appear on a thicker bar just below the thin bar. If there are multiple objects in a layer, in the thicker bar you’ll see three short vertical lines and a number representing the number of objects the layer contains at each point in time, rather than the names of individual objects (Figure 5.2).
