Stupid Question: How to change without animating?
on Feb 18, 2010 at 5:53:53 pm

I know this has got to be something really easy that I'm just overlooking, but how do I change an effect without animating it?

For instance let's say I want my opacity to be at 20% from 01:00 through 05:00, and then at 05:00 I want it to instantly change to 100%.

If I just use keyframes, it will animate from 20% to 100% between 01:00 and 05:00 (so for instance, at 03:00 it will be at 60%). So how do I just change it instantly?

You Need to read up on Hold keyframes! They're just the ticket for you. Here's a good start:
