Lesson 2. Ballet Special Bumper > Previewing the animation

Previewing the animation

You can preview by scrubbing, or dragging left or right, in the time ruler. Before you preview, you'll turn off the video for the Sugar.mov layer and turn off the grid so you can get a better picture of what is happening.

  1. Click the Hide Shy Layers button to display the shy layers in the Time Layout window, and then deselect the Video switch ( ) for the Sugar.mov layer to hide the video in the Composition window.

  2. Click the Hide Shy Layers button again to hide the layers in the Time Layout window.

  3. Alt-click (Windows) or Option-click (Mac OS) the safe-zones icon to turn off the grid.

  4. Press Ctrl+Shift+A (Windows) or Command+Shift+A (Mac OS) to deselect the layers.

    To preview the opacity changes that you just set, you will scrub (view by dragging the current-time marker) through the composition frame by frame.

  5. Set the current time to 02:00, and then press the Alt key (Windows) or Option key (Mac OS), and slowly drag the current-time marker to the right. You can use this scrubbing technique to go forward and backward through your composition.
