I've looked, and maybe it's there and I'm not seeing it, but is there a way to lock the existing keyframes in position so they won't move when I add to the slide's time length? I'd appreciate any information anyone could give me, even if it's just a redirection to somewhere on here where this issue has already been addressed. Thanks kindly! - Brad
What you need to do, is to Add Time after a selected keyframe, in a selected layer. Once added, the total slide time will be adjusted accordingly, but the previous keyframes on the other layers will stay put, as you want them. Just right click on a keyframe, and from the menu that opens, choose Add/Remove Time. In the next menu write the number of seconds that you want to add.
Sometimes this gets a bit tricky, and how you do this, pretty much depends on how your slide is built, and the way layers enter and then exit the slide.
Normally you should choose the layer that is the last to exit the slide, and add time after the last keyframe.
Then, drag these last keyframes of this layer to the correct time that they were previously, on your new and longer timeline.
The other layers will not change.
Other times you will find that it is necessary to add an additional keyframe in one of the layers, and add time to it.
It's hard to give you specific instructions, as I don't know on what kind of slide you are working on.
But, keep in mind that if you add time to a keyframe that appears during the Transition, you will increase the transition duration, and you don't want to do this.
Therefore, the easiest way to accomplish this, is first to change the time of the transition that comes after your slide to 0 (zero) and work from there. When you are done, you can put back the original time of the transition.
Happy to be of help.
