So basically im creating a character, with each body part on its own layer. Problem is, when im trying to animate him for example walking, when I go to move the differnt body parts, I have to click each part within the body part separetly to move it. For example, I have a red leg with a black outline, I have to separetly select both the red leg AND the outline. It makes it very tedious to select every part of the leg.
Is there like a "select all" button to select everything on the layer, but ONLY on that layer? Even when im clicked in on the "leg layer" if I try to select everything by making a box around it, I end up selecting other parts of the body that are on different layers too. I just want to be able to select everything on a single layer, without accidently selecting things on other layers. Really appreciate any help, I'm just learning. Thanks
You can lock all of the layers and then unlock the layer that you want to work on. Then you can select an individual keyframe and use select all to get everything in that keyframe. A second option is to just click on the keyframe that you want to edit. That will select everything in that keyframe.
thank you for the response. So locking a layer will make it so that everything on that layer cannot be effected when editing it? Is there a way to lock a single frame on a layer?
Not that I know of.
