Set Keys

Objects and their properties appear on the Timeline once they have been keyed. There are a few different ways to key a property. You can manipulate an object directly on the Stage (which will set keys for any resulting transformation, like position, rotation, or scale) or change the property in the Inspector. You can also use the key button that appears next to any property that can be animated. This will set a key for the current value.

Note that the key button has a grey stroke when a key is not set. If the property has been animated, then the property has a blue stroke. If the property has been animated at the current playhead position, then the key button has a blue fill.

Manipulate keys

Keyed objects and their properties appear on rows in the timeline. Keys for properties are shown in a blue fill. If a property (or multiple properties) is collapsed, then the key appears filled in grey.

You can change a key's position on the timeline by clicking and dragging it to the desired location. Use the grey keys to move all of the keyed properties of an object or use the blue keys to change a single property's location.

Copy Keys

You can copy the keys from one object to another by copying the property keys from the animated object and pasting them to another object.

Resize Keys

You can resize a selection of keys by holding alt and dragging them from the start or end. This serves as a quick way to shrink or lengthen a selection of keys.
