How to create a keyframe in a clip


#1

Maybe this thread should be classified in “help/how to”, but I have not found a simple way.
Here is an example :

I want to create a keyframe in a clip exactly here (1),
at the precise time of 10;00 (2)
This keyframe must have the same position value (357,686) than the previous one (3)

To date, to do this, I have found no other way than:

  • Set the playhead to 10; 00
  • Change the value from 357 to 350 which will create the new keyframe
  • Then put 357 again instead of 350
    There may be another simpler method, but I have not found …

So I suggest, if it was possible to add a button (+ for example) to this place on the next picture to do this.

Mute a selected part of some audio without slicing it up

Yeah, I don’t know of another way either. Instead of a button though it would be better I think to have it as an option when you right click on the Keyframe timeline. That way you don’t have to swing the mouse to the other side to add the keyframe. You’ll be right there adding it in the same spot where you want it.


#3

I do this by JUST clicking the circle in the middle of the size and position box.


This will create a new point in keyframes which will be identical to the previous one.


#4

I knew I was missing something. :smile: Good catch, @scellycraftyt.


#5

Yes, it’s a possibility that would suit me too


#6

It is a solution for some filters. But for others such as “audio level”?


#7

good point…

maybe you could just change the volume slider and then enter in the original value again to add a point.


#8

For filters with slider controls if you need to repeat an exact key frame value you can seek to the key frame you want to repeat. Then go to the position where you want the new key frame, roll the scroll wheel up and back again. This repeats the exact key frame at the new point.

+1 for this suggestion. I mentioned something similar here:


…but alas got no replies …:unamused:

Two great workarounds which I hadn’t thought of - thanks!!


#10

Yes, it’s a workaround, but after a few tries she did not convince me. It sometimes happens that this manipulation creates 2 keyframes, one when I turn the wheel up and the other when I turn the wheel down.
I would prefer the suggestion of DRM


#11

Suit yourself. I always get 1 key frame with this method. Always.


#12

here is an example
On these screenshots we can see by zooming in that some keyframes are double.
It’s not always, and I do not know why.

Moving the playhead will give you another keyframe as shown in your 2nd picture.

As @sauron states, and I concur, you only get 1 keyframe when scrolling.


#14

What do you think about the suggestion before I gave about adding an option for these situations through right clicking on the Advanced Keyframe timeline?


#15

I think it’s a good suggestion.
But in the meantime there are work around’s that work.:smile:


#16

I’m currently working on a video editing, it is true that it is possible to use the technique of @sauron, it works in the majority of cases, but I still say that it is not very practical.
And why not a keyboard shortcut on a key not yet used?
