Nudge on AE

Does the AE CS6 version of Mocha do nudging via cursor keys? For me, both cursor and command+cursor are frame/keyframe controls. Is this as designed?

Slight correction here: The CS6 (2.6.2) version does not have nudging keys, as we only introduced them in version 3 of our software.

Sorry about that!

Hi Hillary,
The nudge keys are the arrow keys. If you want to see what all the shortcuts do you can check out documentation but you can also check the preferences section of mocha as well.

Hi guys,
The arrow short cuts is a preference in v3 products only, so make sure you are using the right version.

A common way to navigate in video editing applications is to use the LEFT and RIGHT ARROWS to move up or down the timeline a frame at a time. In After Effects however using a LEFT or RIGHT ARROW button will actually nudge an entire layer. Instead in After Effects, the PAGE UP or PAGE DOWN buttons will move navigate a frame left or right. Holding down SHIFT while tapping SHIFT UP or DOWN will move you 10 frames. As an alternative you can hold COMMAND (Mac) or CONTROL (PC) and tap the LEFT or RIGHT arrows, to move a frame left or right in the timeline. A bit of advice: pick one of the above and stick to it! There are generally 3-4 ways to do everything in After Effects. If you commit to one way it it will cut down on mistakes, be easier to memorize and make you more efficient.
