Replacing clip while keeping clips's keyframes in place

Is there a way to replace a clip in your timeline while applying the replaced clips keyframes to the new clip?

Another way of saying this is I want the replacing clip to use the old clips keyframes. I haven't found a way to do this. The current options given are (Replace, Replace from Start, Replace from End, Replace with Retime to Fit, Replace and Add to Audition, and Audition).

No, you can't. Good feature request for Apple, though.

Here's a workaround:

1. Select the clip you want to replace and Cmd+C to copy
2. Replace the clip however you want (replace from start, replace from end, replace clip, etc...)
3. Now that you've replaced the clip, select it in the timeline and Cmd+Shift+V to paste attributes. This allows you to paste the original clip's effects/transform/crop/distort/etc... parameters (including all keyframes) to the new clip.

Additional tip, if you don't need to select specific attributes and are final pasting all of them you can by-pass the Paste Attributes window by using Option-Command -V instead and the attributes will be pasted directly.
