Tip #1611: Remove Keyframes in Motion
Here’s how to get rid of keyframes you no longer want.
Sometimes, Motion creates keyframes when you don’t expect them. Here’s why and how to get rid of them.
There’s a keyboard shortcut in Motion that’s the culprit: A. Yup, one letter. And it is also the shortcut for the Arrow tool in Final Cut – one we use ALL the time! When you think you’re selecting the Arrow tool in Motion, you’re actually creating keyframes.
Sigh… Really. Dumb.
To turn off this setting, type A again.
If you see parameter values in red, that means that they are set using keyframes. (That’s the give-away.)
To remove keyframes that you don’t want, click the small arrow on the right of a parameter name (red arrow in screen shot) or setting and choose Reset Parameter.
You can change this keyboard shortcut using Motion > Commands > Customize. Or use the Final Cut Pro command set.
