It looks like the patent is in specific to how keyframes are manipulated. Not keyframing itself. Patent language is always over-broad in the abstract, but when you read the specifics, it has to do a lot with how keyframes are moved and eased.

For example, they described a situation where the user sees a collapsed view of their keyframes in bar form (like FCPX currently displays them). Then the user only needs to drag in between two keyframes to create an ease curve.

It also describes how multiple keyframe groups can be selected and moved forward or back in time with a click-drag operation.
