Chapter 17. Drawing Timelines > Changing the Timing

Changing the Timing

You can change the length and duration of an animation bar if you want an action to start sooner or end later within the timeline.

To move the beginning or end of an animation bar:

1.
In the Timelines panel, click on the beginning or ending keyframe on the layer’s animation bar (Figure 17.43).

Figure 17.43. Click on the end keyframe and drag it to a new location.


2.
Drag the keyframe to a new frame number within the animation channel (Figure 17.44). You may notice the other elements in the timeline moving around as you drag the keyframe.

Figure 17.44. We lengthened the animation bar we selected in Figure 17.43. Notice how the keyframes in the middle of the animation bar are spaced out over the new length of the animation bar.


3.
Play the timeline to see how it looks.

4.
Repeat Steps 1 and 2 as needed.
