    How do I trim/split a layer on After Effects?

    mcnoronha Level 1

      I have started animating using Adobe After Effects CC 2015 and I have some issues regarding layers.

      I am aware that I can trim them using option and the bracket keys, however, what I wanted to do was to split the layer so that it has a gap in between.

      For instance, layer 1 is visible from 0:00 to 1:00, but what I wanted was to make it appear again at 2:00, leaving a blank section in the middle, from 1:00 to 2:00.

      The only way I found to do this was to duplicate the layer then adjusting, yet it requires a huge amount of layers.

      Is there any way of making it in the same layer?
