    Keyframing HELP


      Hello, every time I try to toggle animation I get the message "This action will delete existing keyframes. Do you want to continue?" What do I do???  I can not do any effects with this problem!

          Why are you toggling the Animation on and off? You only need to do this once, to turn on keyframe animation. Once it is toggled on, you add additional keyframes via the Add/Remove Keyframe button:

          Once you have keyframes for the animation, clicking on the Animation toggle will potentially remove any keyframes you have for that parameter - which is why you get the warning.

            I think what you want to do is


            1) adjust keyframe to make it do what you want




            2) delete keyframe ..which will throw off the others in terms of the 'curves' already created...but you can then add another one and try to fix your problem.


            It's hard to do... to make the timing and motion and opacity or whatever the keyframe is doing to behave properly but with patience and choices ( ease in, ease out, Bezier, etc. ) it can be done.


            good luck !

              To add to what MTD said, you only have to toggle the animation for a certain property once,

              then when you move in the timeline (both the effects control timeline or the actual timeline),

              and change the value for that property you toggled the animation for, this will automatically

              create a new keyframe with the new value. Your animation will play between those 2 keyframes.
