Tip #799: A Faster Way to Remove Keyframes
The Pen tool does more than draw, it can also select… keyframes, for instance.
I discovered this tip while researching a recent webinar covering the basics of editing in Premiere.
During my demo, I found myself with a number of audio keyframes that I needed to remove. While I could – and did – Control-click each keyframe to remove it, I wondered if there was a faster way.
And there is!
- Select the Pen tool (Shortcut: P), then drag a selection rectangle INSIDE the clip. It will select any keyframe that it touches.
- Then, press the big Delete key to remove them.
NOTE: The cool thing about this process is that you can quickly remove one, several or all the keyframes in a clip. This isn’t an “all-or-nothing” technique.
