          Please read through the help files. The w key activates rotation which will give you slightly different tools if the layer is 2D or 3D. The v key will give you the selection key. You should be able to click any tool in the tool bar. If you want to manually enter values press the r key with a layer selected in the time line to bring up rotation properties.


          I promise you that you cannot learn how to use After Effects efficiently without going through some training. I've been teaching AE for a little more than 20 years and I've never seen a single person successfully stumble through the app and produce anything other than a direct copy of someone else's project.
