Thats what you asked to do.

What exactly do you want?

I'm basically asking how to stretch time between two key frames.

Then click and drag the other keyframe away from the first one. (Or the other way around)

Hi Sir,

But that will compress the time between the next key frame. I want to be able to slide the key to the right and have it shunt all the keys along with it.

Also: Some times the keys are not visable on the time-line. Is there a toggle button for their visability?

Ahhh, well thats a completely different situation with many more steps.

Select all the keys to the right and drag them all at the same time.

Thats logical - I should have worked that out. Thank you.

How about their visability?

(Ive just worked it out. Its Control A ensuring the Set Key function is off)

To speed things up is it possible is there an alternative to selecting each key to the right with the control button down. I thought you would be able to select all keys between two points.

open up trackview, select all your objects, then select all the keyframes you want to shift, there's a tool to slide your keyframes
