Using Slider Controls for Setting Properties

In addition to dragging or using numeric controls, you can also access a slider to change the values for some layer properties, including scale, rotation, and opacity.

To use a slider control to change a layer property:

1.
Select a layer in the Time Layout window.

2.
Display the transform property you want to change—scale, rotation, or opacity.

3.
Press Option (Mac) or Alt (Windows) as you click and hold the mouse on the name of the property you want to change.

A value slider appears for the property (Figure 7.35).

Figure 7.35. Option-click (Mac) or Alt-click (Windows) and drag on the name of a property to use a slider control.


4.
Still pressing the mouse button, drag the slider to change the value for the property.

As you drag the slider, you can view the changes in the info window, and in the Composition window (if the current time is set to a frame of the layer).

5.
Release the mouse to set the property value.

In the Composition window, the layer appears with the property value you set. If the stopwatch icon is not active for the layer, this is the property value for the layer's entire duration. If the stopwatch is active, a keyframe for the property is created at this frame.
