Hand (layer)

Hand tool (editor)

hand tool

The Hand tool is used for navigating around your composite shot timeline. It can be quicker and easier to navigate with the Hand tool than using the scroll bars.

When the Hand tool is in use you can't interact with anything in the layer view. This means you can click and drag anywhere on the layer view part of the timeline to navigate, without altering any of your layers.

You can still interact with the layer listing if you want to adjust any properties.
