I am working on an animation in Flash which probably has more than 100 layers. On some layers, one animation ends and the other begins. What I want to do is extend the animation on one layer (I want the end frame in that layer to be on a little longer) while not affecting any of the other layering. How would I do this?

In other words. here is a sample scenario:

Layer1: Animation ends at frame 40
Layer2: Animation begins at frame 40 and ends at frame 60
Layer3: Animation begins at frame 60  

How do I extend the timing of Layer1 to 50 and have Layer2 automatically begin at frame 50 and have layer3 begin at frame 70?

Thanks.

FG!

Insert blank keyframes on layer 50 until it gets to where you want it to be.
Drag the starting frame on layer 2 to frame 50 and layer3 to frame 70.

let me know if this is not clear.

That's what I thought I would do but that would take a lot of time if there are hundred or so layers.

the quick way to insert frames..eg for layer 1
select frame 50 .. hit F5

what wildbrookmedia has suggested for the next step.. is the only (quick) way.

hmm ... here's what I found ... I right clicked on one frame and "Select all" so all frames on all layers were highlighted ... I then moved the frames to the right and there were blank frames on the left. Instead of "select all" I want to start the selection at 40 in this case. Any ideas?

Thanks.

click and drag to highlight the rows.  or click on the rows you want to highlight and hold the shift key.  then click where you want your selection to end.

I think I was using a voodoo machine. Sometimes this worked, sometimes it didn't.
