Motion 5 - Scrub

background image


Moves a virtual playhead around a clip, allowing you to change the timing of the clip
without moving it in the Timeline. Additionally, this filter allows you to animate the offset
parameter, often with interesting results. Try adding the Scrub filter to a clip, then apply
the Randomize behavior to the Frame offset, with the “Offset from” parameter set to
Current Frame. Also, you can create a hold frame by setting Offset to First Frame, then
using “Frame offset” to find the frame you want.


Scrub does not affect clip audio.

This filter causes rasterization in 3D groups. For more information on rasterization, see

About Rasterization
