Keyframing is a process where you can assign specific values to various setting at different points in time. For example you could have different settings for settings such as Temperature, Saturation, Zoom, etc. at different points within the same clip. Here is a quick example showing how to do accomplish this. For this example we want to have a video clip that start out in black and white and then gradually changes to full color around the middle of the clip.

  1. Place the Storyboard Time Indicator to the front of the clip.
  2. In the Image Settings click the + sign next to Keyframes. This will add a Keyframe at the first frame of the video clip.
  3. Move the Saturation Slider all the way to the left, so that there is no color. This Saturation setting is now associated with the keyframe that was created in step 2.
  4. Move the Storyboard Time Indicator to the middle of the clip.
  5. In the Image Settings click the + sign next to Keyframes. This will add a Keyframe at middle of the video clip.
  6. Move the Saturation Slider to the right far enough that there is full color. This new Saturation setting is now associated with the keyframe that was created in step 5.

That's all there is to it. Now the clip will start out in black & white and then gradually add color until the middle of the clip. You can use the same process for any of the video settings. You can also add additional keyframes to add additional variation to the video clip.
