Animation Layers selection

As we saw in previous chapters, in order to remove or flip layers, you first need to select them.

Click on the layer's name, it will be highlighted in green.

It can be very interesting to select several layers at once. To do so, hold [Ctrl] or [Shift] when clicking. The selected layers will then appear in green.

You can also use the contextual layer menu with a right click.

Several options will then be offered to you. You’ll be able to select the current layer only (This Layer), All layers, Active, Inactive or Empty layers. You can also choose to Invert the current selection or to unselect everything (None).

Finally, the Group sub-menu will allow you to select layers from a group (All, Active, Inactive or Empty layers), as well as Invert your selection. The notion of Color Group will be further explained in lesson 4.

Thanks to this multi-selection, you will be able to add exposures to all layers once, instead of doing it for every layer.
