Graph editor won't show anything

Recommended Posts

I've been setting up a complex scene with a toothbrush and mouth. For some reason, the graph editor(timeline) won't show anything (whether selected or not) in the left pane. If I copy and paste an animated item to another project window, I can see everything fine. I'm using the "animation" layout BTW. 


If I create a floating graph editor window from the "window" menu then it works. It's something about the graph editor that's docked in the animation layout. Of course, I can easily fix this by replacing the non-working graph editor with the fresh floating one, but I would like to understand what I broke for future reference. When learning a new software, I always end up screwing  something up in the interface. I'd like to know how to unscrew it, if someone can help.


I've attached the scene., trimmed down to a couple of objects.

In that graph editor, do all the keys and whatnot come back if you press Alt-A ?

As Jay said, maybe accidentally you switch view mode from automatic to "individual" mode. Currently (when Automatic mode off) you could drag animated object from OM to Timeline to see keys...
