I've added a bunch of keyframes to some music clips in my timeline. I now want to change the music track, and the new track is longer than the old one, so it's not a simple case of alt-drag to replace the music. Ideally, I'd be able to move all the clips' keyframes from the clip to the track, so whatever I put on the track would abide by those keyframes (they're to duck the music because of dialogue on another track).
I've tried copying/pasting the keyframes, but that doesn't seem to do anything. Is there a way to do this?
Use the Effect Controls panel to copy the effect(s) on your clip and then paste in another clip in your timeline. If you right-click on the effect name in the Effects Controls, you'll see you have the copy option. If you right-click on a particular attribute of the effect, you won't have the copy option.

I think it's impossible to copy/paste track keyframes (clip keyframes copy OK, but cannot be pasted to a track). I've never done much audio in Premiere before, and it absolutely sucks! I'm now trying to duplicate an audio track...apparently you can't. Really?! All I want to do is try out another music option, so my options are:
Duplicate my current music track to create a new track, complete with track keyframes in tact. Delete the music clips and add new music clips, whose volume will obviously obey the track keyframes. But that's not possible.
Create a new audio track, put my new music on it, then copy the track keyframes from my old music to the new track. But that's not possible either.
