    Increase the duration of some layers, but preserving the starting point of next layers

    Gavinanda

      Hi.

      I'm a very newbie on after effects and I have the following problem.

       

      I was able to create a sort of video presentation using some text and video.

      The length of my composition is about 60 seconds and I'm currently using 6 videos for ten seconds each.

      All videos (from 1 to 6) are "aligned" with two layers (text and music) each

      VIDEO1

      TEXT1

      SOUND1

      VIDEO2

      TEXT2

      SOUND2

      VIDEO3

      TEXT3

      SOUND3

      VIDEO4

      TEXT4

      SOUND4

      VIDEO5

      TEXT5

      SOUND5

      VIDEO6

      TEXT6

      SOUND6

       

       

       

      Now I would like to increase the duration of some videos, for example the first and the fourth.

      I'm able to increase the VIDEO1 but then I have to manually increase the lenght of TEXT1 and SOUND1 (because I don't know if there are some short keys to do it): the problem

      is that I need ALSO to move all the layers (from 2 to 6) of the same length and I don't know how to preserve the starting point.

       

      The same problem is happening when I try to modify the VIDEO4.

       

      Is there a way to solve this problem "elegantly"

      Thanks
