When you import a template in the Timeline view, all layers are created as well as drawings and keyframes. You can choose to import only the keyframes without the drawings or import only the drawings that are not already in your layers. You can adjust the behaviour using the Paste Special dialog box.When you import a symbol in your scene, its full length is exposed by default. If you import a symbol in the Timeline view’s left side, all the frames will be exposed. However, if you import it into an existing layer, you can use the Paste Special dialog box to adjust the import behaviour to fit your requirements.Once you set the parameters, Harmony will reuse them each time you import a symbol in the Timeline view’s right side until you set new parameters.
- In the Library view, select the symbol or template to import.
- Do one of the following:
- While holding down the Alt key, click and drag on the template, then drop it on the Timeline view, over the layer and at the frame where you want to paste it.
- Press Ctrl + C (Windows/Linux) or ⌘ + C (macOS). Then, in the Timeline view, click on the frame where you want to paste the template and press Ctrl + B (Windows/Linux) or ⌘ + B (macOS)
The Paste Special dialog box opens.
- In the Paste Special dialog box, select the desired parameters—see Paste Special Dialog Box.
- Click OK.
