Combine XYZ Scale Handles

Post by rafael » Wed Jun 12, 2019 7:01 pm

Am I crazy or is there no way to manipulate scale curves in unison? Currently, I'm changing the angle of the XYZ individually to match each other so the scale is uniform but that is a less than ideal workflow...

Is there a way to do this while retaining bezier interpolation?

Try dragging the keyframe using the Right-Mouse button. For some reason, when you use the left button in the Motion Graph, it grabs individual channels (in order of bgr, or zyx I guess.)

Hope this helps.

Didn't work but I am using a pen and tablet, and can't right click and drag without also "left mouse" clicking...

Is it a Wacom? I don't have my tablet hooked up at the moment but will check in a bit.

Actually, I switched recently to a small XP-Pen tablet because it fits over my laptop's trackpad.
