Using your Three Button Mouse Effectively in Adobe After Fx

To get the best out of After Effects 6.5 a 2 button/Scroll wheel mouse is essential. I've pulled my hair out many a days with a one button mouse working in After fx because I thought the mouse looked cool but using it was far from efficient.

With A 3 Button Mouse You Can:

- Scroll vertically through your Layers, Comps, and Footage. This especially works well when your working on those huge corporate broadcast projects or working with all those pictures in that family reunion montage you've been tweaking out for the last six months.

- Hold the Shift key and now you can scroll horizontally! Now that's a hot key to remember.

- Holding the Alt key while scrolling in the timeline will result in some Zoom action.

My favorite part you ask? It would definitely be the fact that the window I want to scroll over or zoom in doesn't have to be active. I can just hover over the timeline or my footage and navigated to what I'm looking for.
