Learn how to add, copy, paste, and edit keyframes — the primary mechanism for creating animation in After Effects — as well as adding motion blur and working with parenting.
  1. In After Effects, select the layer you want to animate.
  2. You can add keyframes for parameters including Anchor Point, Position, Scale, Rotation and Opacity.
  3. Move the timeline to where you want to place a keyframe. Then click the stopwatch next to the chosen parameter.
  4. To copy a keyframe, use the Lasso Tool to select a keyframe, then copy and paste where the time indicator is located.
