Keyboard shortcut for keyframes only, not expressions

May 21, 2009 1:47 PM

Is there a keyboard shortcut to only show keyframes?

 

I usually use "UU", but that shows keyframes, plus expressions.

    Hello, Navarro.

    You mean "U", right? "UU" means show only modified properties, even if they're not animated

    But you are right, "U" reveals animated properties, regardless of the animation method.

    I don't think there is a shortcut to reveal only keyframes, if expressions also exist (the opposite is true, via the "EE" shortcut to reveal expressions).

    It's a little longer, but you can press U and then press Shift+EE. When you use Shift with one of the shortcuts to show only specific properties, it actually hides them.

    The one catch is that shift-EE will hide all attributes with expressions, even those that also have key frames, so the net result isn't quite the same as revealing all properties with keyframes.

     

    This is a good one for a feature request.  I've often wanted to be able to have this capability.

    D'oh! Of course Aaron is right.

     

    I don't normally do this, but I'm going to go into the feature database right now and add this feature request instead of urging y'all to fill out the feature-request form.

    Hello,

     

    I have the same question/request and came across this thread which I see is dated back to 2009.

    As I see it was registered in a feature request datbase, has there been any progress (i.e new shortcut) since then?

     

    Thank you in advance.

    I submitted too. I just ran into this frustrating issue the other day. I too thought, "Well, I'll just get rid of the expressions...wait, there go some of the keyframes! DANG IT!" And a brilliant solution was foiled again.

    Revealing keyframes and expressions select all layers and press the U key.

    To hide the expressions press the shift key and then hit E twice.

     

    If the property that has the expression has keyframes the pressing the shift and EE will hide that layer.

     

    I use this all the time.

    I use it all the time too, but I want a way to show the keyframes on a layer without showing the expressions.
