Is it possible to trim the timeline if a scene doesn't start at frame 1?  I often find that I start new scenes where old one's end and would like to do something like 'trim comp to work area' in After Effects.

Thanks

You can also "Delete Frames" in the Timeline Editor.
(Of course, that is a permanent removal of frames, but can be very useful when you do a "Save As" to start a new scene that is similar to a previous one, for example.)

If you have any soft cloth physics, long hair, or particle emitters, you will need a second or two of animation before your real action begins to be sure the cloth is settled down, or the emitted particles are visible, etc.


P.S.
I will take a moment to once again say "THANK YOU" to REALLUSION for vastly improving the performance in Insert Frames and Delete Frames.  It used to that a long, long time in iClone 5, but is extremely fast in iClone 6.  I'm not sure if I've done it in iC7 yet.  Hmm... I better make sure it still works wonderfully.
