Deleting or Rippling Keyframes
You can delete keyframes individually or by stroke/shape, or use the ripple function to change a keyframe and apply that same relative adjustment to the point across a range of frames.
To Delete a Keyframe
|1.||Using the Viewer timeline, scrub to the frame where you want to delete a keyframe.|
|2.||In the stroke/shape list, select the stroke/shape whose key you want to delete.|
|3.||Do one of the following:|
• If you want to delete a key that is set to animate the entire stroke/shape, right-click on the stroke/shape and select delete key > all.
• If you want to delete a key that is set to animate a position, right-click on the stroke/shape and select delete key > spline.
• If you want to delete a key that is set to animate a transformation, right-click on the stroke/shape and select delete key > transform.
• If you want to delete a key that is set to animate attributes, right-click on the stroke/shape and select delete key > attributes.
If no other keys are set for the selected stroke/shape, the frame marker on the timeline turns from blue to the default color.
To Delete All Keyframes for a Stroke/Shape
You can also delete all key frames you’ve set for a stroke/shape at one go. Do the following:
|1.||Select the stroke/shape from which you want to delete key frames in the Viewer.|
|2.||Right-click on the stroke/shape and select no animation > all, spline, transform or attribute depending on whether you want to delete all key frames for that stroke/shape or only key frames animating shape, transform or attributes. All key frames are removed from the stroke/shape you selected.|
Rippling keyframes allows you to adjust the position of a stroke/shape point on one frame and have that same relative adjustment applied to the point across all frames or a specified range of frames. This way, you can make non-animated changes to a stroke/shape which is being animated over a set of frames.
|1.||Activate Select All tool in the RotoPaint toolbar and click the ripple edit button in the RotoPaint tool settings. A red border displays around the Viewer to indicate that the ripple mode is active. In the dropdown menu next to ripple edit , select:|

• from start - to ripple frames from the first frame to the current frame.
• to end - to ripple frames from current frame to the last frame.
• range - to ripple a particular range of frames.
|2.||Select the stroke/shape you want to edit from the stroke/shape list.|
|3.||Make the necessary changes to the stroke/shape in the Viewer.|
