Chapter 11. Adding Effects > Keyframing Effects

Keyframing Effects

After you activate the keyframing process, keyframing involves nothing more than repeating the same two-step procedure: setting the current frame of the clip and then setting the effect's property values for that frame. The specific steps are outlined in the following tasks.

To prepare to animate an effect:

1.
In the Timeline window, expand the track containing the clip with the effect you want to animate by clicking the triangle next to the track's name.

The expanded track reveals additional information about the clips.

2.
To reveal keyframes in the audio or superimpose tracks, select the track's show keyframe icon.

Effect keyframes appear instead of other clip information, such as pan and fade controls.

3.
To make sure that the Effect Controls palette is visible, do either of the following:

  • Choose Window > Show Effect Controls (Figure 11.40).

    Figure 11.40. Choose Window > Show Effect Controls.

or

  • In a grouped palette, click the Effect Controls tab (Figure 11.41).

    Figure 11.41. Click the palette's tab to bring it to the forefront of a window that contains more than one palette.

The Effect Controls palette appears, displaying the effects contained in the currently selected clip.
