Need clarification from manual
on Apr 10, 2010 at 12:07:59 am

I'm trying to use the range selection to delete multiple audio keyframes...I found in the manual on Page 925:

To select a range of keyframes to modify

Use the Range Selection tool to select a group of keyframes. You can now move, delete, or change the level of just those keyframes.

So how do I delete them? I've done every combination of keystrokes/mouse drags I can think of...I can't figure it out.

The easiest way to delete keyframes is to click on them and drag them out of the timeline. Pooof, gone!

So what about 140 keyframes? That's a lot of "poof-gone's"

It's in the manual...how do you do it?

Looks like the manual is just plain wrong in this case, although I'm using FC 6, so results could be different in 7. As far as the "drag and poof" method goes, the Delete Point tool is faster and easier.

If all the keyframes are within a single clip on the timeline I suppose you could razor blade on each side, remove attributes/audio levels, and then set a matching key frame on each end.

If it spans many clips it would involve exporting and reimporting as a single clip. Personally, I wouldn't consider that a workable solution.

The same language is on page 114 of version 6 manual.

Yes, I found that, but, like you, I see no way to make it work. A search of previous posts on this forum retrieves a few other hits about the subject and confirms that the manual is baloney. Blatant false statements like that are rare, however. Hope for it in the next version of FCP. Moving a range of keyframes is similarly frustrating.

Send this as feedback to Apple. They will want to know this.

[Tom Brooks] "Moving a range of keyframes is similarly frustrating."

You do know about using the slip tool in the viewer to move the keyframes, right? Although it moves ALL keyframes...it could work for your specific application.

And thanks for sending the feedback!

Just got out of a color class with Robbie Carman at NAB! this week is going to be awesome...

I slip filters and motion keyframes in the filter and motion bars of Clip Keyframes. Just drag between the keyframes.

Why not select a clip with no audio keyframes, copy it and they paste attributes to the clips you want to delete keyframes, pasting levels? I use that to copy motion and opacity keyframes but I have never tried to use it to delete keyframes. You might have to reset the master clip gain afterwards but it would be a lot easier than deleting hundreds of keyframes.

Worth a try.

I did not know about that. I work in isolation. It's a thing of beauty. Thanks.

You guys will be glad to know that NAB wasn't a complete bust...here's a quick video I made with some information from Abba here at NAB!

The method is cool but it modifies the two frames adjacent to the selection. It'd still be nice if you could just clear the selected keyframes without having to set a single absolute level.
