Chapter 7. Properties and Keyframes > Nudging Layer Properties

Nudging Layer Properties

You can also use keyboard shortcuts to slightly change, or nudge, the position, rotation, or scale of a layer. When you nudge a layer, After Effects counts pixels at the current magnification of the Composition window, not the layer's actual size. Therefore, nudging a layer's position moves it 1 pixel when viewed at 100 percent magnification, 2 pixels when viewed at 50 percent, 4 pixels at 25 percent, and so on. When layer quality is set to Best, you can nudge layers on a subpixel basis. Therefore, a layer set to Best quality can be nudged .5 pixel when viewed at 200 percent, .25 pixel when viewed at 400 percent, and so on. Table 7.3 lists the keyboard shortcuts for nudging properties.
