  • Manually preview (scrub) video – Problem

    Posted by Stephen Ash on August 30, 2009 at 1:19 pm

    I am learning after effects and have accidentally pressed something that stop me from tracking through videos with the scrub dragging feature. Now when i drag i only see the start point and the point where i stop scrubbing.

    This is a problem when i scrub anything including text or static images – its now really hard to position things with the scrub feature as i cant see what i am doing until i let go of the mouse.

    I have looked through the menus to see if i could find something related to this but couldnt find anything.

    I would appreciate it if you can help by telling me how to get this back to normal.

    Kind Regards

    Its easy when you know how – i couldnt find this in any of the settings!

    But at least now i have had a big old look through all menus – could be usefull when im looking for something else.

    Really Appreciated!
