The Effect Controls panel lists all the effects that are applied to the currently selected clip. Fixed effects are included with every clip: the Motion, Opacity, and Time Remapping effects are listed in the Video Effects section and the Volume effect is listed in the Audio Effects section. The Volume effect is included only for audio clips or video clips with linked audio.
You can quickly optimize the interface for effects editing by selecting the Effects workspace. Choose Window > Workspace > Effects.

By default, the timeline view is hidden, but you can show it by clicking the Show/Hide Timeline View button . Widen the Effect Controls panel, if necessary, to activate this button.
You can click the triangle to expand an effect property to display the Value graph and Velocity graph.
When a clip is selected in a Timeline panel, the Effect Controls panel automatically adjusts the zoom level of its Timeline view. It centers icons for the clip In point and Out point. You can view the timeline beyond the clip In point and Out point by deselecting Pin To Clip in the Effect Controls panel menu. The Effect Controls panel also includes controls for playing and looping audio clips. The keyframe area lies under the time ruler. The keyframe area is where you can set keyframes for the value for each effect property at a particular frame.

View effects in the Effect Controls panel
In the Effect Controls panel, do any of the following:
- To view all effects applied to a clip, select the clip in a Timeline panel.
It is not necessary to position the current-time indicator over a clip to activate the Effect Controls panel.
To expand or collapse video or audio effects headings, click the Show/Hide button in the heading. When the arrows are pointing up , the heading is expanded to reveal all the effects in that section. When the arrows are pointing down , the heading is collapsed.
To expand or collapse an effect or its properties, click the triangle to the left of an effect heading, property group name, or property name. Expanding an effect heading reveals property groups, and properties, associated with that effect. For example, Three-Way Color Corrector is an effect heading. Tonal Range Definition is a property group. Shadow Threshold is a property. Expanding an individual property reveals a graphical control, such as a slider or dial.
To reorder the effects, drag an effect name to a new location in the list. A black line appears while you drag when the effect is above or below another effect. When you release the mouse, the effect appears in the new position.
Fixed effects (Motion, Opacity, Time Remapping, and Volume) cannot be reordered.
- To show the timeline beyond a clip’s In and Out points, deselect Pin To Clip from the Effect Controls panel menu. The areas of the timeline beyond the selected clip’s In and Out points appear in gray. When Pin To Clip is selected, only the timeline between the clip’s In and Out points appear.
- To play audio in the selected clip, click the Play Audio button . This control is only available if the selected clip contains audio.
View keyframes for an effect property in the Timeline panel
Do any of the following:
Click the Show Keyframes button in the track header of a video or audio track, and choose one of the keyframe options from the Show Keyframes menu.
Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the clip containing the keyframe properties you want to view. Choose Show Clip Keyframes, and then choose the effect containing the keyframes you want to view.
Filter properties in the Effect Controls panel
While editing keyframes in the Effect Controls panel, you can filter properties you don't need and focus only on the properties you care about.
Click the Filter icon at the bottom of the Effect Controls panel and filter properties by:
Show All Properties
By default, all properties are shown.
Show Only Keyframed Properties
The Effect Controls panel only shows properties that have the stopwatch enabled (blue).
Show Only Edited Properties
The Effect Controls panel only shows the properties of a filter that has been changed away from its default value.
You can assign keyboard shortcuts to quickly filter these properties. To assign keyboard shortcuts, click Premiere Pro > Keyboard Shortcuts and search by the filter name.
Additional to keyboard shortcuts for each individual filter, you can set a shortcut to cycle through all filters with only one shortcut. In the keyboard editor search for Select Next Effect Controls Properties Filter and set a shortcut.
Adjust or reset controls in the Effect Controls panel
Do any of the following:
- To change a property value, place the pointer over the underlined value, and drag to the left or right.
- Click the property value, enter a new value, and press Enter (Windows) or Return (Mac OS).
- Expand the property by clicking the triangle next to the property name (if available), and then drag the slider or angle control (depending on the property).
- To set an angle, drag inside the angle control area, scrub the underlined text, or select the underlined text and enter a value.
Once you have clicked inside the angle control, you can drag outside it to quickly change the values.
To set a color value using an Eyedropper tool, click the desired color anywhere on the computer screen. By default, the Eyedropper tool selects a one pixel area. Ctrl-clicking (Windows) or Command-clicking (Mac OS) an Eyedropper tool samples a 5 x 5 pixel area.
To set a color value using the Adobe Color Picker, click the color swatch, select a color in the Adobe Color Picker dialog box, and then click OK.
To reset an effect’s properties to their default settings, click the Reset button next to the effect. All properties that don’t contain keyframes are reset to their default values. If a property contains keyframes, that property is reset to the default at the current time only. Keyframes that occur at the current time are reset to the default value. If no keyframes occur at the current time, new keyframes are created using the default values.
If you accidentally click Reset, restore your work by choosing Edit > Undo.
