Lesson 8. Working in the Timeline > Navigating to Markers

Navigating to Markers

Now that you've set four markers in the Timeline, what do you do with them? You can navigate quickly forward to the next marker by pressing Option-Cmd-right arrow. You can also press Option-Cmd-left arrow to navigate back to the previous marker. Once the playhead is over a marker, you can then extend or edit elements in the Timeline to the playhead position. We'll try this method to move the playhead to the End Text marker; then we'll change the Out point of the text object to the playhead position. First, let's try moving the playhead to the various markers in the Timeline.

1.
Press Option-Cmd-left arrow to move the playhead back to the previous markers.

2.
Press Option-Cmd-right arrow to move the playhead to the End Text marker.

When a layer is closed, you can still select the contents within the layer in the Timeline. A closed layer includes two regions. The narrow top region represents the layer, and the lower, thicker region represents the elements within the layer.

3.
Select the Time Oakley object in the Timeline.

4.
Press O to extend the Out point of the Time Oakley text layer to the playhead position (End Text marker).

5.
Click the Text disclosure triangle in the Layer list to view the contents of the newly extended layer.

The layer and its contents both have been extended to the playhead position.
