Working Without Keyframes

Although keyframes are a very valuable tool, you may encounter times when you don't want to use them. For example, you might want to zoom in on clip and keep that level of zoom from the first frame to the last.


  • Some filters, such as the Basic Color Corrector, have keyframes turned off by default and you need to activate them before you can use them.

To deactivate/activate keyframes


With the editor open, click the Options tab.


Open the keyframes area by clicking the small triangle.


Click the "Do not use Keyframes" or "Use Keyframes" radio button, depending on what you want to do (Figure 9.44).

Figure 9.44. Turning off all keyframes.


  • In a filter, turning off keyframes is useful for creating global effects, such as correcting a poorly framed camera shot or for color correction. Don't forget that you can stack filters, which allows you to use the same filter with or without keyframes as the need arises.

  • Turning off keyframes in this way is global. To deactivate specific keyframes, see "Deactivating a keyframe area" earlier in this chapter.
