the last frame "begins" on the beginning of the the last frame,
this seems a bit funny, but that's, how it is in any NLE:
where you place your playhead, you see the frame that sits behind it, so when you place your keyframe at the end of the last frame, you actually place it on the next frame, which is cut off / already the first frame of the next clip.
place your keyframe one frame before the cut and you'll be fine.
You might not find the keyframe on a long clip until you zoom in on the effects timeline, but as soon as you zoom in to the end of the clip there, you'll see it.
also you can use the "go to next keyframe" -button to go there and activate it then tweak it. Or simply go to the last frame (it's Beginning) and tweak the value of your animation.
This I do understand. I've been using Premiere since 6.5 and have used Pro 1, CS3, 4, 5, and now CS6. I also use Avid, Avid DS and others.
I guess, let me clarify my earlier question/problem.
The problem is more to the fact that in the previous versions of Premiere, when you would drag the keyframe to the end of the effect editor window (zoomed in or not), your keyframe would end up on the last frame of the clip. Not so in CS6. Now normally, sure, you would just create the keyframe in the spot you need it and be done. However, if you are copying and pasting an effect and the second clip is longer, you sometimes need to drag the keyframe to the end of the clip. My point in this discussion is that in previous versions, when you would drag the keyframe to the point at which it would no longer move (physically stopped moving on the screen) whether you were zoomed in on the effect editor or not, you would be on the last frame of the clip. In this version, this is not the case. Sometime it makes it all the way to the end. But, more often than not, the keyframe is usually a few frames prior to the end of the clip. Without zooming in all the way, sometimes it is a little difficult getting that keyframe all the way to the end.
Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Had this problem myself....when you are in your Effects control panel, go to the pull down on the right of that panel. Uncheck Pin to Clip.
Anne B. told me about this.
I tried that as well. What appears to be happening (I just went and experimented a little more), is that in CS6, the effect editor window (when zoomed out) will not always show you the entire clip. For example, I pushed the keyframe just out of view of the end of the clip and when I zoomed in to the maximum, the keyframe was on the last frame. However, if I just dragged it to where it "snapped" to the "end," that was 3 frames before the end of the clip. In previous versions there was a little darkened "dog ear" showing the end of the clip in the effects editor. That is now gone. So now, there is no visual clue indicating whether you are actually seeing the full clip in the effect editor. It is just one solid color bar. I wonder if this could even be addressed?
Overall, this version is a nice improvement. There are just a few minor things that are a small setback...
Thanks everyone.. please keep the information coming. I'm hoping I'm still just missing something. Perhaps this is not a bug.. but perhaps just a new "feature" I haven't fully embraced
Thanks so much for the reply. That helped immensely! It's still a little clunky for me, but at least it does work!
