Chapter 9. Applying Special Effects > Working with Keyframes

Working with Keyframes

Keyframes allow you to vary effect settings over time, essentially animating the effect. The result is a true quantum leap in creative potential.

When I was first learning about keyframes, it took a while for the concept to sink in, so I'll start with a simple application where I'll use keyframes to transition in the application of an effect. Specifically, I'll apply a soften filter to the beginning of a clip and then gradually remove the filter so the video comes into focus. This example will involve three keyframes, one at the start of the video, one at the point where the video becomes clear, and one at the very end.
