Lesson 4. Working with Behaviors > Moving an Object in the Mini-Timeline

Moving an Object in the Mini-Timeline

The project lasts almost 6 seconds—plenty of time to show both watches one at a time. Let's start the project with the Detonator watch and then fade in the Time Bomb watch for the second half of the spot. In this exercise, you'll reset the project play range and move the time_bomb object in the mini-Timeline.

1.
On the Layers tab, select the time_bomb object, if it's not already selected.

2.
Press Cmd-4 to close the Layers tab and the Project pane.

3.
Press Option-X to reset the project play range to include the full duration of the project (5;26).

4.
Drag the time_bomb region in the mini-Timeline toward the project Out point until the Out point of the time_bomb region aligns with the end of the project (5;25).

NOTE

The duration of the project is 5;26, but the last frame is actually 5;25 because the first frame of the project is set to 00, not 01, in the project preferences.

The moving watches now play in the Canvas one at a time.
