Lesson 8. Working in the Timeline > What You've Learned

What You've Learned

  • You can open the Timeline tab in the Timing pane by pressing Cmd-7.

  • The Timeline tab includes a Timeline Layer list that works the same as the Layer list on the Layers tab. It also includes a Timeline, a timecode ruler, and a Current Frame field.

  • You can enable and disable filters and behaviors in the Timeline Layer list, and also show and hide filters, behaviors, and other elements.

  • Motion provides three tools for zooming into and out of the Timeline: the Zoom slider, the Zoom/Scroll control, and the Zoom to Fit button (which fits the entire play range into the Timeline window).

  • The Timeline consists of tracks for each layer, object, behavior, and filter. You can collapse a layer by clicking its disclosure triangle. The number of objects that a layer contains is listed on a collapsed layer in the Timeline.

  • If you drag multiple files to the Timeline, you can import them as a composite (one over the other) or sequentially (one after the other).

  • Motion provides three options for importing media into the Timeline. You choose the import option from the drop menu that appears when you drag a file to the Timeline. The drop menu options are Composite, Insert, and Overwrite.

  • You can use markers to align clips in the Timeline. You can set markers in the Timeline at the playhead position by pressing Shift-M. You can name and colorize markers in the Edit Marker window.

  • You can move a clip to the playhead by pressing the bracket keys. Pressing Shift-[ (left bracket) moves the In point of the selected clip to the playhead position. Pressing Shift-] (right bracket) moves the Out point of the selected clip to the playhead position.

  • Motion includes premade templates that are organized in the Template Browser. The premade templates are royalty free, and you can modify them with your own media.

  • Templates include generic titles and objects that you can replace with your own text and media.
