Add/Remove Keyframe Greyed Out on Motion:Scale

Nov 11, 2009 11:03 AM

I am trying to motion scale and I cannot create ANY keyframes.

 

I am only allowed to create keyframes in the opacity menu.

 

I am using Premiere Pro Version 4

 

I am trying to do this effect on a JPG image. I have also tried the effect on a video clip, and nothing. I am unable to create ANY keyframes, it is greyed out.

 

Any ideas as to why?

    Welcome to the forum.

     

    What version of PrPro are you using?

     

    Have you clicked the "Stopwatch" to toggle Keyframing On/Off?

     

    Good luck,

    Here's a look at the Stopwatches in the Effects Control Panel:

    Bill is showing you where to set them.  In the Effects Control Panel, not the sequence.

    I strongly suggest reading the entire Help file before you use the program.  Little things like this will not occur.

    Glad that you're up and editing.

     

    I do agree with Jim on reading everything on Keyframing, as it is a wonderfully powerful tool. Check out Bezier Curves to adjust Velocity (Ease-In/Ease-Out will be useful too, when animating). I probably rely on Keyframing in PrPro more than I should, as AE is just sitting idle on my computers. Still, If I can do it all in PrPro, I just get lazy sometimes.

     

    Just wait until you start Keyframing Motion>Scale and Motion>Position (and dozens of other Effects) on individual Layers in a .PSD file. Man, the fun you can have!

     

    Good luck,
