    Lost in the AECS6 Timeline - How to expand Video Layer

    Neonhigh

      Hello,

      I am new to this forum and new to After Effects. Please forgive me for asking such a basic question, but for some reasons I can't find an answer anywhere in this forum (or on the online user manual).

       

      How can I get to see the extended clip with thumbinal and opacity rubber band adjustment? (like in this image)

      Basically, I would like to see a Video Track in AE like it would appear in Premiere Pro.

      After sending my clip from Premiere Pro to AE, I can only see a solid color with no opacity control. (like in the image below)

      I tried to click the little triangle next to the clip source name (like I would do in Premiere with to expand/contract the video track) but it only opens the layer list.

       

      I am apologize if this is somehow covered by the AE manual, but I checked the entire timeline paragraph and I did't find any imformation related to this option. After two hours of trying clicking everywhere I gave up :-)

       

      To be precise:

      I need to work on a simple time remapping of a 2K 120fps r3d clip, and I would like to follow this tutorial, but without expanding the clip I cannot access keyframe menus on the clip, as well as I can't see the rubber band.

      Thanks for your feedback.
