mirroring event attributes

I'm just wondering if it is possible to mirror event attributes.

I love being able to 'copy' an event and then 'paste event attributes' to another event so as to easily sync graphics through keyframes.

Now however I what to have a movement of one event (its attributes) mirrored on another event rather than straight copied.

I have two partially overlapping circles and I want them to roll apart in opposite directions. I have the motion looking ok on one of the circles with three levels of graphics all moving in sync, but now I want to mirror that motion in another set of three graphics.

Is mirroring event attributes possible?

Re: mirroring event attributes

i believe you can reverse a clip (play it backwards). i wonder if you can use that to reverse the order of the events. is that what you're after?

Re: mirroring event attributes

It sounds like you are wanting to copy keyframes. Are they Pan/Crop keyframes? Track Motion keyframes? What kind of keyframes are they. If you copy the entire event, you can add another clip as a take and the Pan/Crop keyframes will be copied. For Track Motion, you would need to select the keyframes, copy them, move the cursor, and then paste them to the new location.

Re: mirroring event attributes

Thanks Edward. I've been using in these sort of cases, pan/crop keyframes.

I've got it working but not through any simple mirroring process. I worked it out using the x/y and rotation numbers for the keyframes of one circle going one way...as to how far I had moved and rotated from the start point. Then I subtracted these amounts for the keyframes in the other circle going the other way. Bit labourious but it worked and looks good...
