Hi Adobe Family,
I've been curious for a while about this feature. Anyone who uses AE on a regular basic is quite familiar with the composition trimming hot keys using alt + [ and alt + ]. When trimming the front-end of a comp using the hot key, the program will trim the comp to the exact location of the time indicator. However, when you trim the back-end of the comp, the trimming will actually take place one frame later than the location of the time indicator.
Ex. If I set my time indicator to the 10th frame in my comp, then trim the back-end using alt + ], the comp will be timmed at the 11th frame instead of the 10th.
This is not necessarily an issue I'm dealing with, it's more of a general curiousity of why that is the default setting - and if there's sound logic to it that will improve my AE workflow overall.
Let me know what you all know!
Why are you posting about After Effects in the Animate forum?
oh sorry about that. must have clicked the wrong topic. my apologies!
forgive my typos:
"...on a regular basis..." / "...the comp will be trimmed..."
