Using Keyframes

Whenever you create motion paths, change filters over time, sculpt audio levels, or just fade to black, you need to use keyframes. Think of a keyframe as a kind of edit point—you set a keyframe at the point at which you want to change the value of an effect’s parameter. Keyframes work the same way wherever they are applied.

You don’t need keyframes to set a single level or value that applies to an entire clip; keyframes are required only if you want to change the value at some point within the clip. After you have added the first keyframe to a clip, Final Cut Express adds a new keyframe automatically whenever you change an effect setting for that clip at a different point in time.
