Chapter 14. Motion Settings > Setting Position

Setting Position

True, you can set the position at a keyframe in the motion path. However, additional controls allow you to make more precise adjustments.

To set the spatial position at a keyframe:

1.
In the Motion Settings dialog box, select a keyframe.

2.
To change the spatial position of the selected keyframe, do any of the following:

  • To change the position manually, drag the keyframe in the motion path (Figure 14.30).

    Figure 14.30. You can drag the position of a keyframe directly in the motion path.

  • To nudge the position 1 pixel at a time, press an arrow key.

  • To move the position 5 pixels at a time, press + an arrow key.

  • To center the clip in the visible area (at coordinates 0,0), click the Center button (Figure 14.31).

    Figure 14.31. Click Center to position the clip at the center of the visible area for the current keyframe.

  • To set the position numerically, type X and Y coordinates in the Info boxes below the motion timeline (Figure 14.32).

    Figure 14.32. You can enter X and Y coordinates for the current keyframe’s position, expressed in the dimensions of the sample in the motion path area: 80 × 60 pixels.
