Animation Keyframing

You can use keyframing to create custom animations. You create a keyframe to specify what values for animation qualities should be on specific frames of your video. For example, if you set one value for scale (size) at the 0:30 timestamp and a larger value for scale at the 1:00 timestamp, the piece of media you are keyframing will grow between those two keyframes. In Filmora, you can keyframe scale (size), position, rotation, and opacity.

Add and Edit Keyframes

Here’s how to create keyframes:

Add a video clip, image, or motion element to your timeline. Then right-click it and select Animation>Add Animation.

Add Animation

In the menu that opens, click into the Animation tab, and select Customize.

Customize Animation

Move the indicator to the timestamp where you want to create a keyframe and click Add. After that, you can see a blue dot representing Animation Keyframe in the video clip.

Keyframe Dot

And you can set values in the keyframing menu or drag the media in the preview to adjust its rotation, scale, position, and opacity for the keyframe.

1stKeyframe Customization

Move the indicator again to the second or third timestamps, then click Add to add more keyframes, and its rotation, scale, position, and opacity values as you like.

2nd Keyframe Customization
You need at least two keyframes to create an animation. The first keyframe you make will be for the current state of the media you are animating, and then you’ll set a second keyframe later in the clip that is changed.

Delete Animation Keyframes

Playback your video on the timeline and check the animation you create. And you can also right-click the keyframe on the video clip delete or clear all keyframes you created.
