Displaying a Path in the Camera View

You can display the trajectory of a motion path when you select an object in the Timeline or Camera view.

If you want to see the trajectory, enable the Show Control Points on Selected Layers preference.

To enable the Show Control Points on Selected Layers preference:

1. In the top menu, select Edit > Preferences (Windows/Linux) or Stage > Preferences (Mac OS X) or press [Ctrl] + [U] Windows/Linux) or [⌘] + [U] (Mac OS X).

The Preferences dialog box opens.

2. Select the Camera tab.
3. In the Control Points section, enable the Show Control Points on Selected Layers preference.

4. Click OK.

If the trajectory is hidden when you select an element, you may want to display it using the Control command.

To view the layer’s trajectory using the Control command:

1. Verify that the Camera view (click its tab) is selected and that the layer whose trajectory you want to display is selected in the Timeline view.

2. From the top menu, select View > Show > Control or press [Shift] + [F11].

If nothing appears in the Camera view, you may not have animated or selected the layer.

To hide the layer’s trajectory:

1. Verify that the Camera view (click on its tab) is selected and that the layer that you wish to hide the trajectory of is selected in the Timeline or Camera view.

2. From the top menu, select View > Show > Control or press [Shift] + [F11].
3. If you want to hide all trajectories without selecting any layer, select View > Hide All Controls or press [Shift] + [C].
