Get faster in final cut pro -9- move keyframes

Final cut doesn’t make it easy to move multiple keyframes – but it is possible! You can move both audio and video keyframes, but they each require a different approach.

How to move video opacity keyframes

    hit option t with the timeline window active.
    look for the blue bars under your video clip.
    hit ‘ a’ and position your cursor over the blue bar.
    click and drag the blue bar to reposition the keyframes.

    How to move audio volume keyframes

      double click on the audio file.
      hit ‘s’ for the slip tool.
      click and drag the red levels graph to reposition the keyframes.

      Sometimes it’s easier to watch it done, so more info (and a video) here at aled4d’s blog.

      These are the kinds of tips and tricks you usually learn by watching someone else edit. If you have something that drastically speed up your editing, let me know in the comments!
