I would like to know if exists a shortcut for direct selection of a layer in the Composition panel. I mean the equivalent of alt+click over a graphic in Photoshop clicking directly in the canvas, in order to avoid search in the list of layers.
Many thanks in advance
a feature like Ctrl+click to select layer in Ps does not exist in Ae, but there are ways to navigate in the composition panel, here are my workarounds:
1. hover over the layers in the timeline, you will see a wireframe bounding box over each layer you hover over.
2. If it's a text layer, use the text tool and click on the layer, this will select it in the timeline. Click keypad enter to deselect editing.
3. Lock layers - very useful (also in Ai and Ps) be quick about it with shortcuts for lock layer, unlock all. Now you can just click on the layer, if it's not the one you wanted, lock it, click again.
Thanks a lot!
