Keyframming Effects

Postby JohnEarl on 09/23/2015, 1:03 pm

Hi! This is a really "noobish" question, but since i started out with AE today, it makes sense.

I made a video which i want to put different effects while the video is going, how im suppose to keyframe those effects? Right now i just add the effect and it lasts the whole video, can someone explain me in a really noobish way how to do it?

Thanks alot for your time spent on this question,
JohnEarl.

Hi John, welcome. I would highly recommend that you start here:
http://www.videocopilot.net/basic/
(the first three tutorials will get you to keyframing, but for the basics go through them all) they are very old but they are quick.

After Effects is a great program but it is complex and if you don't have the basics you will either give up or get really, really frustrated.

This is a good place to start:

Are you working at full resolution?
Are you rendering at full resolution?
Screenshots would really help. Saying it doesn't look right isn't useful if we don't know in what way it isn't looking right.
