Status bar Click in the Time Tag
box. Add Tag
Use the Add Time Tag
dialog to define a
tag for the current spot in time.
To use time tags:
- Move to the spot in time where you want
to add a tag.
- Click in the Time Tag box, and choose
Add Tag from the menu.
- In the Add Time Tag dialog, enter the
name of the tag. Choose whether to lock it to time and whether to
make it relative to another tag, and click OK.
The name of the tag appears in the tag slot,
and will reappear whenever you go to that spot in time.
To jump to a defined tag, click the Time Tag
slot and choose the tag name from the list.
To rename, delete, or change the properties
of a tag, click the Time Tag field and choose
- Tag Time
Displays the current
frame, to which the tag will be assigned.
- Tag Name
Enter the name of the
tag. You can create a long tag name in this field, but the tag slot
will display only 15 characters.
- Lock Time
Locks the tag to the
current frame, regardless of subsequent scaling of time.
For example, with Lock
Time off, if you have a tag named "Forty" at frame 40, and you scale time
up 200 percent, the Forty tag will be at frame 80. If Lock Time
is on, the Forty tag remains at frame 40.
- Relative To
Lets you assign another
tag to which the current tag will maintain a relative offset.
For example, if you have
a tag at frame 10 called First and you create a second tag at frame
30 called Second, if you move the position of First to frame 25,
Second will move to frame 45 to maintain the 20-frame offset between
the two tags.
This is a one-way offset.
If you change the time position of the second tag in the example,
the first tag is not affected. Circular dependencies are not allowed:
you can't have First relative to Second and Second relative to First.
