Edit Faster, Smarter and Easier!



Hi, everyone! In this video, I'm going to show you how to use keyframing in Filmora 11. So basically, if you don't know what keyframing is. The simplest form of animating an object. In this video, I'm going to teach you some really basic beginner-friendly tips for keyframing in Filmora 11. How to add keyframes? How to delete them? How to put them on photos and texts?


First, to access the keyframing option, just double-click on your clip, go to “Animation,” and then “Customize.”


To add a first keyframe on your clip, just click on “+Add," and in your timeline, you will see that the keyframe has been added. So every time you click on "Add," a new keyframe will appear, and those keyframes will be connected into one motion. Basically, what I wanted to say was every keyframe represents a new motion you are adding to your subject.


In Filmora 11, you can rotate your object and change its scale, position, and opacity. Now that you know the basics and you have your first keyframe, just go to the place in your clip where you want your motion to start.


And then again, click on “Add” to add a new keyframe. When you do that, adjust your object by sliding or even with your mouse. So do whatever you want, and you will see the keyframes will connect, and you just keep adding as many keyframes as you like. The more keyframes you add, the smoother the motion will be.


If you want to adjust the duration of your keyframes, just click on them, and slide them left or right if you want to make them shorter or longer.


If you made a keyframe and you don’t like how it looks, you can easily delete it by clicking on the keyframe you want to delete. And then just on “Delete,” and it will automatically disappear.


When adding a keyframe to a photo, you basically do the same thing I told you earlier. You can just keep adding as many key references as you like and doing whatever you like.


In Filmora 11, you can also add keyframes to your text and do the exact same thing. Double-click "Animation" and "Customize," and keep adding your keyframes however you like. Make it fun and be creative.


And the last thing I wanted to mention is to just have fun and be creative while making keyframes. Of course, you will need practice, but you will get there. I personally use keyframing a lot when editing. I think it's a really useful tool, and in Filmora 11, it is really easy to use.

Guide on How to Actually Use Keyframing on Filmora


What you need to prepare:

  • A computer (Windows or macOS)
  • Your video materials.
  • Filmora video editor
Step 1

Head over to the Wondershare Filmora website and download the Filmora Video Editor. Run the program and click on Create New Project.

Step 2

The first step of using keyframes to animate or control various aspects of your video in Filmora is to actually create your first keyframe. To do this, you need to double-click on a video clip in your Timeline, go to the Animation tab, and then select Customize. From here, click on “+ Add”. The keyframe will appear where your Playhead is currently positioned.

Step 3

In order to create motion and changes in your video, you need more than one keyframe. So, move the Playhead to another position and click on “+ Add” again. Now, whatever changes or sliders you move around between the keyframes will be your animation.

Step 4

Additionally, you can add keyframes to your text and photos as well. Simply click on the clip you want to add keyframes to and follow the same steps as shown above. For example, you can create keyframes on a text and make it slowly grow by increasing its size slightly at each keyframe you create.

As you can see, keyframes in Filmora are super simple. Just add as many as you’d like, make the desired effects at each keyframe, and watch your object, photo, video, or text slowly shape into something different.
