how to duplicate keyframe without using copy and paste
on Mar 14, 2011 at 9:36:08 pm

Hi, I've been searching this out for a bit now, and can't seem to find an answer. I'm using AE CS5, and trying to duplicate a keyframe. I can copy and paste, no problem, but I seem to recall being able to hold a key down and drag a keyframe which would duplicate the keyframe. Doing research I've found reference to ALT drag doing this, but this does nothing for me. I'm almost positive I recall doing this but just can't remember or find out how again. Any help greatly appreciated!

I don't know of any way to copy keyframes by Alt-dragging.

Here's all of the information about editing and copying keyframes.

SPACEMAN uses ALT>drag on multiple keyframes to reposition them in time and in relation to each other.

SPACEMAN uses ALT>drag from project window to a selected layer,
thereby replacing the selected layer with new content, whilst
retaining all keyframed variables.

SPACEMAN has never duplicated keyframes by ALT>drag.

SPACEMAN wonders if COWDOG woofs or mooos....

SPACEMAN needs spaceship parts, not expressions...
