A Quick Tour of Adobe After Effects >  Copying and pasting keyframes

Copying and pasting keyframes

To save time while designing a project, you can copy and paste keyframes. Here you'll copy the last two Scale keyframes you set and paste them onto the end of the N.ai layer. You'll then apply a keyframe assistant to reverse the order of the keyframes, making the layer zoom in from 0 to 200%.

  1. In the Time Layout window, select the Scale keyframe in the N.ai layer at 3:00, and then hold down Shift and select the last keyframe at 4:10. Choose Edit > Copy.

  2. Move the current-time marker to 10:00 and choose Edit > Paste. The keyframes are pasted back onto the N.ai layer at 10:00 and 11:10. Notice in the Composition window how the N.ai layer displays 200% at 10:00.

  3. With the last two keyframes still selected, choose Layer > Keyframe Assistant > Time Reverse Keyframes. Notice in the Composition window that the N.ai layer now displays 0% at 10:00. You've reversed the two keyframe values, so the value at 10:00 is 0 and the value at 11:10 is 200%.

  4. Press the Home key, and then press the spacebar to preview the scale animation.
