Track View Dope Sheet Ranges toolbar (Position Ranges)

Position Ranges mode allows you to position range bars independently from their associated keys and produce special effects.

The process of adjusting a range bar independent of its keys is called decoupling the range. Positioning a range bar so it matches the first to last keys of a track is called recoupling the range.

NoteThe Ranges: Dope Sheet toolbar doesn't appear in Track View by default. To open it, right-click an empty area adjacent to the Dope Sheet toolbar and choose Show Toolbars Ranges: Dope Sheet. Save your layout after you do.

Decouple a Range Bar

You decouple a range bar for two reasons:

Procedures

To decouple a range bar from its keys:

  1. Right-click an empty area adjacent to the Dope Sheet toolbar and choose Show Toolbars Ranges: Dope Sheet.
  2. On the Track View toolbar, click (Position Ranges).
  3. In the Track View Key window, drag the entire range bar left or right of the keys, or drag either end of the range bar to make it longer or shorter than the keys.

    Using Out-of-Range types in conjunction with this procedure allows you to change the behavior of an animated loop. Positioning either end of a range bar changes the loop.
