Animating scale, rotation, and opacity

At this point, my snowflake is animating into position. I think I'll make it more interesting by also animating scale, rotation, and opacity. I'll select the Snowflake layer, press Shift+S to reveal Scale, Shift+R to add Rotation, and Shift+T for Opacity. Now I'd like these keyframes to synchronize with the last position keyframe. You can do that by adding the Shift key or by using the Keyframe Navigator. Now when I turn on the stopwatches for Scale, Rotation, and Opacity, I know they will be in sync with the Position keyframe.

When you're turning on multiple stopwatches, by the way, you can just drag across them, as opposed to clicking each one individually. I'll press Home to return to zero and decide what Scale value it should have. Let's say I think it needs to be bigger, maybe even 100%. Remember, I don't really want to go above 100%, so let's just type 100%. Since my snowflake will fade up over time, I'll never actually see it quite this big.
