Chapter 7. Properties and Keyframes > Using Scrubbable Hot-Text Controls

Using Scrubbable Hot-Text Controls

With After Effects 5, ordinary property value displays have become scrubbable hot text. This means that you can alter a property's current value simply by dragging, or scrubbing, the value display itself—a small feature that could have a big impact on the way you work.

Of course, you can still enter numeric values or open a dialog box to enter property values. Although a dialog box might not offer the convenience of scrubbable hot text, it does allow you to enter decimal values or to employ different units of measurement for the property value—neither of which you can do with scrubbable hot text.
