Chapter 6. Image Manipulation Within Tim... > Using Keyframes to Customize Effects

Using Keyframes to Customize Effects

Wouldn't it be nice to have full control over customizing your effects every step of the way? Well, you can. You can actually control the amount of each effect setting to every single frame individually with the use of keyframes. Keyframes are markers that contain a specific set of values or instructions (such as the opacity or position) at a specific point in time. You can change these values as you add different keyframes at different points in your timeline. In other words, when the playback head comes across a keyframe, it knows exactly how the effect is to be displayed during playback. Keyframes hold information such as size, position, opacity, and rotation, among other characteristics. This allows an effect to change over time, based on your control. This is the ultimate in customization.

note

A keyframe allows you to force a specific set of directions, values, or parameters at a specific moment in time. This means that when you add a keyframe, every time your clip plays, it looks the same, displaying the same effect values at those particular moments.
