Hello All,

I'm using Continuum....as a plug-in to XpressPro and want to know if there is a copy and paste function
on key frame markers? If so, do you copy the triangle in the AVID edit window or in the Boris pop-up window with all the parameters indicated? So far, Ive not been able to cut and paste.

Thanks in advance,

JL

Hey Jim,

A couple questions. Mac or PC? Are you using AVX 1.5 or 2 effects? Are you using advanced keyframing?

The following is if you are using advanced keyframing:

You have several options for copying and pasting advanced keyframe parameters. You can:

• Copy and paste selected keyframes in a single parameter.

• Copy and paste selected keyframes in more than one parameter.

The selected keyframes can be in graphs or on tracks (that is, the graphs that contain the selected keyframes can be open or closed). If the selected keyframes are offset from one another, the pasted keyframes preserve the offset.

• Copy and paste all graph values at a specific position.

This option is available both in the position bar of the Effect Preview monitor and in the keyframe graphs in the Effect Editor.

For this option, there does not have to be a keyframe in any parameter at the location you are copying from. Your Avid editing application takes all the parameter values at the copying location and uses them to create new keyframes (or replace existing ones) at the pasting location.

-To copy and paste an advanced keyframe in a single keyframe graph or track:

1. Click the keyframe you want to copy.

2. Select Edit > Copy, or press Ctrl+C (Windows) or Command+C (Macintosh).

3. Do one of the following:

- Move the position indicator to the location where you want to paste.
- Click a keyframe to select it.
- Ctrl+click (Windows) or Shift+click (Macintosh) multiple keyframes to select them.

4. Select Edit > Paste, or press Ctrl+V (Windows) or Command+V (Macintosh).

The parameters from the keyframe that you copied are pasted to the keyframes you selected, or a new keyframe using the parameters that you copied is created at the location of the position indicator.

-To copy and paste multiple selected advanced keyframes:

1. Ctrl+click (Windows) or Shift+click (Macintosh) multiple keyframes to select them.

You can select multiple keyframes within a single parameter or across
severalparameters.

2. Select Edit > Copy, or press Ctrl+C (Windows) or Command+C (Macintosh).

3. Do one of the following:
- Move the position indicator to the location where you want to paste.
- Click a keyframe to select it and move the position indicator to that location.

4. Select Edit > Paste, or press Ctrl+V (Windows) or Command+V (Macintosh).

The keyframes that you copied are pasted to the location you selected. When the keyframes you copied are offset from one another, the leftmost of the copied keyframes is pasted at the location you selected and the other keyframes are pasted in locations that
preserve the original offset.

- To copy and paste all parameter values at a position:
1. Do one of the following, either in the position bar below the Effect Preview monitor, or in the keyframe graphs in the Effect Editor:

- Move the position indicator to the location from which you want to copy values.

- Click a keyframe at the location from which you want to copy values.

2. Do one of the following:

- If you are working in the position bar of the Effect Preview monitor, select Edit > Copy, or press Ctrl+C (Windows) or Command+C (Macintosh).

- If you are working in the keyframe graphs in the Effect Editor, right-click in the graph area and select Copy All Values at Position, or press Ctrl+Alt+C (Windows)or Command+Option+C (Macintosh).

3. Do one of the following:
- Move the position indicator to the location where you want to paste values.

- Click a keyframe to select it and move the position indicator to the location where you want to paste values.

4. Select Edit > Paste, or press Ctrl+V (Windows) or Command+V (Macintosh).

New keyframes are created at the pasting location, or existing keyframes are modified.

As a result of this procedure, every keyframe graph in the effect has a keyframe at the pasting location with its parameter value set to the value for that parameter at the copying location.
